FAMILY PROGRAM: The Great Leaf Hunt and Crafting

Workshop | November 16 | 10-11:30 a.m. |  UC Botanical Garden

 Botanical Garden

Celebrate fall in our collection of leaves from all around the world!
Find the giant "umbrella" leaf of the Gunnera plant, compare it with the tiny leaf of the world's smallest flowering plant, be wowed by a tree with three different types of leaves on one plant, including "ghost", "mitten" and "egg" shapes, and see a leaf that actually moves when you touch it. During our mini-tour we’ll talk about why some leaves change color and why some leaves are smelly.

After our walk, we'll return to our classroom and make leaf decorations for our homes, including beautiful leaf weavings from nature.

Children must be accompanied by a paid registered adult.
