Harry Potter Herbology with Professor Ane Carla Rovetta
Saturday, April 29th @ 1:30pm
For families with kids of all ages
In the Hogwart’s tradition, we welcome Professor Ane Carla Rovetta, storyteller and authority on the cyclical magic of nature. Families with children of all ages are invited on this nature walk, whereupon they will learn the folklore and property of plants from firsthand observations, followed by a wreath-making activity that symbolizes the cyclical return of spring. Enjoy this walk along with talisman creation as you learn the science and magic of nature around us.
To register for this event, call us at (415) 485-3322, or visit the Children’s Reference Desk.
