Second Nature

Second Nature programming basks in nature, curiosity, and food!  Formerly known as Sustainable Sundays, the promonthly;talks and workshops tap into the exciting potentials that NHM's new gardens offer. Are you craving urban survival skills? Want to know what some of those cool urban trees are called? Curious about pickling your own cucumbers?

We welcome you -- urban naturalist, foodie, master gardener, DIY tinkerer, and all around fun seeker!


Upcoming Events:

We'll kick off the spring 2015 season with tasty DIY workshops on mole, chocolate, tamale, and paper-mache making. More information coming shortly!
