Perfect for budding gardeners and animal keepers, Mr. Taylor's Terrarium Tuesdays will teach youngsters ages 5-11 to plan, create, and tend small ecosystems. This three-meeting series will focus on environment planning, water/lighting requirements, as well as plant and animal species that thrive in these habitats. In this last session, a special guest will discuss carnivorous plants, highlighting their care and feeding in addition to bringing several specimens for a close-up look at these growing wonders. Children will finish this program with the knowledge and materials to make a terrarium at home.
