RIVERTON, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

The Riverton Museum is jumping into spring with a gardening clinic this weekend. The site manager hopes the event is educational, while also enjoyable for families to participate in together.

Megan Ostrenga, Riverton Museum Site Manager stated, “I hope the kids get to experience gardening and maybe if it’s something they’ve always been curious about, they can actually learn with an easier plant, and also just get dirty! It’s fun to play in the dirt.”

The children’s gardening clinic will include planting orange marigolds around the museum to coordinate with the orange museum logo. Painting rocks and birdhouses donated by the Riverton Garden Club as well as a flower craft will be taught at the event.

The cost is $5 per child, parents do not need to pay to attend and help their children. The Riverton Museum is looking forward to children of all ages learning how to garden while also beautifying the museum.

The Riverton Garden Club donated craft items and door prizes for the event as well.

“We are very thankful for the Riverton Garden Club helping us with this. They’ve not only helped us through the years of planting our front yard and helping us learn how to care for those plants but just them donating all of the seeds and ideas has been super helpful. Last week they actually had a speaker series as well so they’ve been invaluable to us,” added Ostrenga.

The event is this Saturday April 17th from 2 to 4 in the afternoon at the Riverton Museum.
