Celebrate Earth Day with FREE admission to Powell Gardens on Friday, April 22, 2016! Explore Kansas City's botanical garden to gather sustainable gardening ideas, get tips on how to choose plants that help the planet's ecosystem and learn ways to cook fresh from the garden.
Arrive early and take home a tree seedling (one per party, while supplies last)! The seedling giveaways are part of Powell Gardens new Legacy Tree Program, designed to help preserve some of the region's best tree species for future generations.
Meet Maureen Carroll, author of The Tree Who Walked Through Time--A Tree Identification Story for children. Beautifully illustrated by 18 artists who created realistic and fantastical replicas of trees, this book helps children identify different species of trees. What a great resource!
