Encourage the Love of Trees and Nature in your child! This is presented with The Delaware Museum of Natural History Mobile Museum Program, and in partnership with the Longwood Gardens Community Read program. We will begin by reading the empowering story from H. Joseph Hopkins, The Tree Lady. Take a look at animals that love trees just as much as the story’s heroine, Katherine! This program will have you interacting with live animals that help plant trees around the world! This program is geared toward children ages 4-6.
