Wonder Gardens offers new monthly family program

The Wonder Gardens is offering the Wild World of Wonders Family Club, with monthly sessions starting Feb. 25 on different topics designed to increase environmental awareness.

The activities on the fourth Sunday of each month from 9:30 to 11 p.m. are designed for children 6-9 and a parent or supervising adult. Participants can attend one or all sessions.

“The events will include animal habitat observations, close-up animal interactions and hands-on activities,” said Katie Grimes, education and volunteer manager. “We are hoping to grow environmental awareness while building a community focused on making a transformational impact in the world.”

Upcoming themes include:
• Feb. 25 — “Totally Turtles (and Tortoises)” includes meeting a tortoise ambassador and discovering the life cycle, unique characteristics and steps to protect turtles and tortoises, including the Sulcata tortoises, the third largest species.
• March 24 — “Pollinator’s Paradise” includes discovering the many pollinators at Wonder Gardens and the plants they prefer, learning about the workings of a hive, tasting local honey and planting native plants to support pollinators.
• April 28 — “Tropical Birds and Fanciful Feathers” includes examining feathers, learning how feathers work and get vibrant colors, designing a feather and meeting an ambassador bird or reptile.

The encounters are an additional $10 with paid child admission, with the first accompanying adult, age 18 or older, free with adult paid admission. Additional adults are $10 each with paid adult admission. Realistic stuffed animals relating to each session are available for $20 each.
