The same age group is invited for the Spring Batiks Workshops on Saturday, March 18, from 10 am to 1 pm.

The natural world that surrounds Annmarie Garden is full of amazing things to see and discover. Eco-Explorations are held every month at AMG, and Ms. Burch has created several programs that teach children about nature while they have fun.
The programs and projects are designed for children in the elementary school ages, but siblings and families are welcome to participate, as well. There is no requirement to register, but if you have a large group coming, be sure to let Ms. Burch know so she can make sure every child is accommodated.
