Bonsai is an art that symbolizes harmony, honor and patience. Bonsai trees are considered gestures of respect and convey good fortune upon the receiver. In this class you will learn the basics of caring for a Bonsai tree, including history, different species, soils, shapes, pruning techniques, and more. Bonsai is a pleasant mix of form, thought and suggestion in a miniature world. And like all good art, it endures.

During our CSI camp, you will have the opportunity to investigate maggots, flies, worms, and larvae! Go on a “dead things” hike to explore decaying plant matter, identify various fungi species, and then reproduce the skeleton from an owl pellet. Learn all the steps that lead you to a hypothesis in the Scientific Method and write it all down in your Taltree journal. You will even visit a local laboratory and a police department!
