Create a field guide at children's workshop

Children can create their own field guide at a new workshop at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens and Arboretum's Green Kid's Club.

Join the club for an afternoon of nature study with the Rhode Island Wild Plant Society. Children will explore a variety of nature printing techniques and create a hand-made nature field guide. Each field guide will be unique and individual. Participants are asked to dress appropriately as they will be using acrylic paints.

Advanced registration is required. The cost is $10, plus a $5 materials fee, to be paid on the day of the workshop. The class is appropriate for students in grades 3 to 5.
