I don't write much about the great programs at the N.C. Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill because they are so popular and fill up quickly.
But ... at last check, there are spots available in their popular Nature Tales: Storytime in the Garden series for kids ages 2 to 5.. It runs on Thursday mornings from 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m., May 3 to Aug. 16.
The event includes nature-themed books and hands-on explorations and activities in the gardens. The program is held rain or shine. Pre-registration is required. The fee is $5 per family per day ... no more than three kids per adult.
For more information about this and other programs at the gardens and to register, click here. I'll have much more about the gardens in the next couple of weeks.
