RECYCLED POTS AND SEED STARTER NECKLACES
Thursday, April 5, 4-5 p.m. at Lake Oswego Public Library, 706 4th Street
It is time to sow the seeds for a beautiful flower or vegetable garden. You can start indoors with these seed pots made from recycled newspaper.

PRESCHOOL NATURE WALK: CELEBRATE HEALTHY TREES
Friday, April 6, 10-10:45 a.m. at Springbrook Park (entrance at Uplands Elementary School, 2055 Wembley Park Road)
Join us in Springbrook Park, where you can see trees all around. Every living tree has at least one trunk, many roots, and will be gowning new spring leaves. How do each of these help the tree to be healthy? We will make our own tree to answer this question. Then play healthy tree bingo on our walk through the park. Discovery buckets and exploration tools will be provided. Geared to ages 2-6, but all are welcome.
SEED THE WORLD AROUND YOU
Saturday, April 7, 1-2 at Lake Oswego Public Library, 706 4th Street
In the tradition of "guerrilla gardening" we'll teach you to make seed balls that you can plant in your garden or scatter in the wild. All supplies will be provided, in the form of wildflower seeds, dirt and water. Plan on getting your hands dirty for this project and taking home a garden waiting to bloom. Recommended for grades K-5.
