Pathfinders: Cutting Clones

February 17, 2024
11:00AM - 12:15PM

In this program, Pathfinders will create clones from plants as they do vegetative cuttings. They’ll discover how plants have special structures for regrowth that can be used to create entirely new plants. They’ll wrap up by taking their own cuttings to bring home.

What does it mean to be a Backcountry Pathfinder? A Pathfinder is an explorer, someone who respects nature and inspires others through example and leadership. Children ages 8-13 are invited to join our group of Backcountry Pathfinders where they’ll grow skills and become leaders in caring for nature. Participants who complete Pathfinder activities qualify to participate in special events, check-out investigation equipment during their Garden visits and have opportunities where they can utilize their Pathfinder skills to help better the Backcountry.
Registration is limited to 12 youths, ages 8-13.

Check our full calendar for more opportunities for Pathfinders to learn horticulture. 

This experience is free, but registration is required.
