June's can't-miss events
Not your grandma’s garden
Tulsa Botanic Garden recently unveiled its Children’s Discovery Garden, which is bound to kick summer boredom to the curb.
From 11 a.m.-3 p.m., June 25, learn about the power of pollinators — nature’s super heroes — at the family-friendly Pollinator Celebration. Kids can make masks, search for flowers that attract pollinators, play games and more.
Families also can experience the sensory garden, paint with water on the garden’s art wall or climb the tree fort.
