Children and families are invited to bring a plastic bottle and build a terrarium at Merryspring Nature Center Thursday, July 31, at 11 a.m.

Got an extra soda bottle? Start a garden with it! Guests are invited to learn how to build a terrarium with an empty 2-liter bottle. Seeds, soil, and other materials will be provided. This is an easy, fun, and free program that truly teaches how to reuse and go green.

This program is part of the Free Family Program series at Merryspring.

Free Family Programs are open to the general public every other Thursday throughout July and August. No registration is necessary. For more information on this program and other events, please contact Merryspring at 236-2239 or
