Event details

Celebrate National Hobby Month by crafting a handheld habitat in an Altoids tin! An interpretive naturalist will join in to discuss different animal habitats, natural environments, curiosity cabinets and other tin-spirations for your project. All materials will be provided, but if you have small leftovers from previous craft projects of your own, this is a great opportunity to recycle and repurpose!

Two sessions will be offered:

  • Session 1: 10:30 a.m.-noon
  • Session 2: 1-2:30 p.m.
