Do you like to plant? Have you ever wanted to teach your children how a plant grows? Well, this is your opportunity to have a little bit of planting fun while expanding your child’s knowledge of science. Come discover the science initiatives that ImagineIF Libraries will be hosting this year and participate in the launch of our new Native Plant Garden. Plant and take home a native Montana seedling, care for it and then return it to the library to be added to the garden or give it a forever home in your own yard!
