Budding Naturalist: Spring Wildflowers (Ages 10-14)

June 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Does your child love nature and want to expand their identification skills? In this special COVID-adapted program geared toward older students ages 10-14, participants can join our experts for weekly small group, outdoor sessions. Though programming will take place outdoors, participants are required to wear a face covering at all times.

During this session, participants will expand their botany skills as they learn to identify spring wildflowers with Gardens’ Research Botanist, Melissa Cullina. Skills acquired during this session will help participants identify plants on their own in the future. Registration for this school year program includes Gardens admission for one child and one adult, which is made possible by grant funding.

Please note: In an effort to keep the group size small, this is a drop-off program. If your child would be more comfortable with you nearby, please contact Erika Huber at ehuber@mainegardens.org before the session to discuss options. If this session is full, please call 207-633-8000 to be added to our waiting list.

Melissa Cullina is the Research Botanist for Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Formerly a botanist with the Massachusetts Natural Heritage & Endangered Species Program, Cullina specializes in aquatic and coastal botany, field identification, and rare species conservation.
