Arboretum Days

Time: Sep 17, 2011 (09:00 AM)
Location: Donald E. Davis Arboretum



On Sept. 17, the Donald E. Davis Arboretum will host the first “Arboretum Days” of the semester. Arboretum Days is an approximately one-hour educational program designed for children ages pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. The program begins at 9 a.m. at the Arboretum and features a nature-themed learning activity. The September event will host Andy Gibson, an Eagle Scout from Auburn, who will help participants assemble bluebird house kits that will be placed in the Arboretum and used in bluebird research conducted by the Department of Biological Sciences. Participants will also assemble kits to take home as they learn more about bluebirds and bluebird research, specifics on where to locate a bluebird house, and the optimal time to hang a bluebird house. There is no fee for Arboretum Days but pre-registration is required to insure a kit for each family. For more information on Arboretum Days or to register, call 334.844.5770 or email with the child's name and grade.
