Program Information:

Plants and Bugs Camp uses Junior Master Gardener curricula, Junior Plant Scientist explorations, and other horticulture-related curricula to teach children the basics of plant needs, plant identification, and plant uses. We also do "bug" related activities to teach entomology basics. The two leaders are faculty at OSU with a love for teaching youth about science and nature.
