Family Night Hike: Garden Sweets and Treats

About This Event

Garden Sweets and Treats

Saturday, February 18, 2023
Time: 5:30-7 pm
Price: $15 members, $20 non-members


Come celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend and learn all about sweets and the plants they come from. When you get a box of chocolates or a bag of candy, it’s hard to imagine these sticky treats where once a plant half a world away.  Come with us as we hunt down the botanical origins of our favorite treats.  Hear wacky stories of how some very dull looking plants became scrumptious treasure, and touch, taste, and smell the ingredients of our favorite candies in their raw form.

This is an after-hours event.
