Rockford’s Klehm Arboretum & Botanic Garden, 2715 S. Main St., Rockford, will offer a “Family Days” event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, April 13. Admission to the event is free for museum members and $10 for the public.
This spring, families are invited to engage with nature at Klehm. On the second Saturday of each month, Klehm will offer themed activities for kids of all ages. Participating families will find fun ways to learn about nature outdoors through hikes, scavenger hunts and guided tours. After some exploring, warm up in the Visitors Center Gallery with hot drinks and cookies. Kids can continue learning by making a take-home craft. Plus, everyone will enjoy watching birds as they come to feed just outside the Visitor Center Gallery windows. The theme will be a wildflower walk.
Klehm can be reached at (815) 965-8146 or online at klehm.org.
