In an effort to stay true to our mission, and continue serving the community, we are providing environmentally focused programs through social media. We will offer two programs a week on Wednesdays and Fridays at 11am through Facebook Live. You can view these programs for free and find materials and schedules on our Facebook page. Missed it? See past virtual programs at our Willow Bend Virtual Learning Hub

This week’s scheduled programs:

Wednesday, May 20th, 11AM – Life of a Flower: 

Learn about the magnificent flowers around us! Basic flower parts, how a seed is made, why are flowers so important and more! If you want to follow along while we dissect a flower during the program you can have some flowers ready. Please do not pick native flowers. You can remove invasive weeds such as toadflax, or purchase ornamental flowers from the grocery store.
