Drawing Seeds Under the Microscope


Seeds are rarely depicted in art, but that’s exactly what you’ll do in this online workshop.

After a brief discussion of vellum’s properties and types, we'll lay out drawings before transferring them to the material itself.

$145 – $160

Budding Naturalist: Vernal Pools, Session 2 (Ages 10-14)

Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens 132 Botanical Gardens Drive, Boothbay

In April, Maine’s amphibians migrate to vernal pools to breed and lay eggs. During this session, participants will return to some of the vernal pools visited during the last session and visit some new pools to observe changes in the wood frog and salamander egg masses. Participants will learn how to tell the difference between these eggs as they help count egg masses for our annual survey. They will also learn what makes vernal pools unique and important, gaining an understanding of their role in the forest ecosystem.
