PBS North Coast Kids in the Garden
HBG has partnered with KEET-TV to create a series of monthly classes at the Humboldt Botanical Garden. Classes meet from 10 am until noon on the second Thursday of every month. They are geared for children 2 – 8. Classes from this series are FREE.
Based on the learning triangle. Workshops include viewing a segment of PBS Kid’s Programming, reading several short stories, and taking part in hands-on activities.
Led by Jackie Hamilton from KEET-TV, workshops provide youth with critical reading and comprehension skills.
Workshops are geared for children 2 – 8 years of age, but children of all ages are welcome.
A sensory walk through the Garden will be part of each workshop
Each family will take home a free book.
