Girls Paint with Seeds and Befriend Birds at Upcoming Girls’ Nature Workshops

Girls are strong, curious, passionate people who are always growing and learning. The Girls’ Nature Workshop series gives them a strong, sturdy base from which they can grow their love of nature. This fall, girls ages seven to 12 have two opportunities to branch out in new directions with workshops on seeds and birds.

Girls’ Nature Workshops:
Painting with Seeds
Nov. 18, 1 – 2:30 pm
Holiday for the Birds
Dec. 2, 1 – 2:30 pm

At the Nov. 18 workshop, Painting with Seeds, participants will learn how and why plants create and disperse seeds. They’ll get to study seeds under a microscope and create an art project painted with the fascinating textures and colors of seeds.

At the Dec. 2 workshop, Holiday for the Birds, participants will learn lots of fun facts about our feathered friends. They’ll create biodegradable bird treats to take home and hang in the garden and enjoy hot cocoa or apple cider as a winter treat.

“These workshops are so fun because the girls are so curious and creative,” says Anna SoRelle, innovative learning manager for special programs. “They ask fantastic questions, and they come up with art ideas that I never imagined.”

The program is co-sponsored by the Garden and the Fort Worth Garden Club with the goal of inspiring the next generation of plant lovers and environmental stewards. The program aims to address gender disparities in traditionally male-dominated fields by showcasing successful female professionals and fostering interest and skills in STEM from an early age. The Girls’ Nature Workshops empower girls and build confidence with the ultimate goal of promoting diversity, gender equality, and innovation in STEM. While the series intentionally centers girls as the primary audience, when families have reached out to us about a boy who is interested in participating, they are always welcomed.
