Identify broadleaf trees and make a leaf rubbing or leaf creature! Tour the pop up museum to learn how trees help us. Meet at Blackstone Field, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Drive, Providence, RI 02906). Registration required. Masks and distancing strongly encouraged.
We will explore trees’ role in mitigating the effects of climate change while identifying leaves and making leaf art.
We will also be collecting canned goods for the RI Food Bank and clean, bagged clothes as a fundraiser for reducing food waste in schools by creating composting infrastructure.
This event is part of our monthly “Art & Science in the Park” series with 15 Minute Field Trips, focusing on community action to protect wildlife, promote biodiversity, and combat climate change. Learn about local flora and fauna through art and science activities. Great for families or to use in the classroom. Stay longer to enjoy the park, pick up litter, or use your new knowledge to educate others.
