See the World with NHM Experts!
Travel with NHM scientists to exciting destinations around the world.
Second Nature programming basks in nature, curiosity, and food! Formerly known as Sustainable Sundays, the program's monthly talks and workshops tap into the exciting potentials that NHM's new gardens offer. Are you craving urban survival skills? Curious about pickling your own cucumbers? Or want to know what some of those cool urban trees are called?
Starting in the spring of 2014 we will explore topics such as teas, perfumery, and spices from the Silk Road. As we move into the summer we will build on our canning and pickling skills followed by taking a closer look at what is happening to our bees. We welcome you -- urban naturalist, foodie, master gardener, DIY tinkerer, and all around fun seeker!
