Announcing June Activities: Local, Affordable, and Educational for All Ages
CANTERBURY, NH---June offers several new opportunities for adults and families at Petals in the Pines. Special ways to explore and enjoy the lush green growth, bright flowers, and buzzing activity include:
Pollinator Workshops (June 18, 19, 20; Pre-Registration Required)
Our pollinators are on the decline, and we all need to be concerned. One out of every three bites of food we eat, and over 80% of all plants, require the work of a pollinator. A lack of pollinators has reduced songbird populations, and negatively impacts biodiversity everywhere. We are celebrating National Pollinator Week with a hands-on outdoor workshop where gardeners, homeowners, and landowners can learn how to help these amazing creatures. Workshop fees, learning summary, registration, and additional details at https://petalsinthepines.com/pollinator-workshops
"Spread Your Wings" Days (Pre-Registration Required)
During "SYW" days (most Thursdays) we open our Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom for discovery time and unstructured play. Kids make use of our Arbor Day-certified play areas: to build a fort in the Mossy Messy Area, create a nature craft at the Indian Paintbrush Nature Art Area, water vegetables or look for worms in the Peter Rabbit Garden, or dress up like a fairy or gnome. We let the kids take the lead by doing what interests them the most--we'll provide a safe and nurturing environment. Costs, dates/times, additional details, and registration link at https://petalsinthepines.com/spread-your-wings
"Tale Trail"Stories will come to life for kids as they walk our trails and read, or have read to them, pages from nature books. “Pitter and Patter” is the book selection for our first “Tale Trail” of the season. This delightful story follows two raindrops as they fall from the sky and land in different places, go through the water cycle, and take different paths, meeting interesting animals along the way. This book ties in with the NH State Public Library summer reading program theme, "Oceans of Possibilities."

Since 2010 Petals in the Pines, an Arbor Day-certified Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom and sustainable-practices flower farm, has enabled children of all ages to experience nature in a safe and nurturing environment; and has encouraged and educated adults in their personal exploration of the natural world that surrounds them. Open 9am-6pm daily until Columbus Day.
