Bog Stomp
Saturday June 20, 2015 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Anderson Education Center Classroom

Help create a habitat for the Garden’s newest carnivores, our Pitcher Plants! We invite families with children over the age of eight to participate in this stomping good time, so come out and get your hands (and shoes) dirty while learning about Pitcher Plants and giving back to the Garden. Meet in the Anderson Education Center classroom for a brief talk on how to make a mini bog, instructions for the day and assignments of tasks, such as who will be shoveling, rolling wheel barrows or in the bog stomping! Families should bring their own gloves and shovels. Please wear clothes you won’t mind getting muddy. As a group, we’ll walk to the bog area in the Vernon Bush Azalea Trail where we’ll spend the remainder of our time creating a living bog! Each family will be given its own Pitcher Plant to take home.
