Trees are inspirational! During Tree Art Hike(opens in a new tab), you will walk and discover textures and patterns on trees. Then, you will make bark rubbings, collage, and other art. Tree Art Hike on Saturday, March 26, 3 pm, is part of Montgomery Parks’ Nature for All spring programs. Adaptations are made to accommodate individuals with disabilities.


DIY Nature Project Rustic Vine Basket

We don’t like nonnative invasive vines in our parks, but they are perfect material for building a conversation piece for your home. During DIY Nature Project Rustic Vine Basket(opens in a new tab), you will design a one-of-a-kind basket. The program takes place at Brookside Nature Center April 30 and May 21 at 10 am.
