Children’s classes arriving at UNCC’s McMillan Greenhouse

Help has arrived for keeping your little ones busy now that school is out. The staff at UNC Charlotte Botanical Gardens is offering two classes.

“Carnivorous Containers for Kids” is a hands-on workshop for children ages 7 to 12. The class will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at McMillan Greenhouse, 9201 University City Blvd.

Children who attend can learn about plants that capture and digest insects. They also will plant and take home a bog dish garden planted with a Venus flytrap, pitcher plant and sundew. The fee is $40. To register, write to Paula Gross, pmgross@uncc.edu.

“Woodland Walk for Children” will take place from 1:30 to 3 p.m. June 23, starting from the greenhouse.

Children ages 4 to 8 can enroll to hear a story, collect natural treasures and make a craft. Parents can stay for the program or return at 3 p.m. The fee is $2 per child. To register, write to pmgross@uncc.edu.
