Craft Workshop: Moss Terrariums

Wednesday, June 1, 2022 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm
The Natural History Museum of Utah | Rio Tinto Center


About this workshop:

A terrarium

Learn how to make your own terrarium in an oversize Mason jar using local mosses and other natural elements!  Join Utah local and biology nerd, Lexi Dowdall, in a brief discussion about the importance of the water cycle and how it impacts us and the ecosystems along the Wasatch Front. We’ll then recreate the water cycle in miniature by building our own terrariums with rocks, soil and mosses. This class is great for science fans and folks of all ages, including children! All materials and supplies are provided for this class.
