Sunday, November 22, 2015 from 1-3 p.m. at the UC Davis Arboretum’s Wyatt Deck, students from the Arboretum’s “Learning by Leading” internship program have put together a very special opportunity for participants of all ages to learn more about plants and Native American culture.

Attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the historical significance of dreamcatchers and drums
    and create them;
  • Grind acorns and learn about their many uses in Native American culture;
  • Learn about other edibles and plant one into an up-cycled water bottle planter; and,
  • Play Native American games

This event is FREE and great for all ages!
