Adam Kessel, author of Zombie Gardening, creates a fun and unique way to learn about the plants in the Chicago area. After a brief presentation, we’ll try our hand at a zombie survival activity and take a walk through Lurie Garden and the area surrounding Millennium Park to identify edible and medicinal plants and find out what we could forage in the event zombies take over! This class is recommended for adults and children 10 & up.
You can help the resident birds by providing some much needed food during the winter months. Learn about who stays in the area for winter and how they survive. Each family will make one bird feeder. Materials will be provided. This workshop is for adults and families with children ages 6 and up. Register Your support is meaningful to the Lurie Garden’s continued efforts in providing free nature programs to the public.
