DNI: All Things Cereal

Thursday, March 7, 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Let’s talk about cereal - after all, it is one of the most popular breakfast options and for some it’s their go-to midnight snack. Come to the Conservatory in honor of National Cereal Day and help us celebrate this odd-sounding holiday. How did this nationally-recognized day come about? Join us on $1 Night, make a fun St. Patrick’s Day craft, and have a bowl of sweetness – and find out!

DNI: Easter Lilies

Thursday, April 4, 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Most everyone loves the fragrance that comes from the spring-blooming Easter lily, but how much do you really know about this beauty? Visit the Conservatory for a closer look at this stunning flower and learn all about it! Create your very own Easter lily craft and enjoy a light snack!

DNI: Mighty Migrators

Thursday, May 2, 6:00-7:00 p.m.

In conjunction with our newly opened butterfly exhibit, “Migrations,” we will take a deeper look into what it means to be a migrator. Look at the migration patterns of several of the world’s most familiar migrators, and stay for a fun craft and delicious snack. Don’t forget to check out our exotic butterfly display!
