The Cornucopia of Fall

Visit Hawthorn Hollow this Fall for an extraordinary journey full of adventures and discoveries.  This program focuses on the different ways plants grow through life stages and survive to produce new offspring.

  • Students will make discoveries on seed dispersal strategies and the concept that fruit is a seed container.
  • Visitors will collect and classify seeds from a forest and a prairie.
  • We revisit Native American traditions and celebration of the Fall season while walking a real Indian trail and making a traditional folklore toy to bring home.
