In this program, there is only one way to find the pot of gold at the end
of the rainbow - with your trusty map and compass! We’ll learn the
basics of orienteering and test our new and useful skills by going on a
treasure hunt in the Garden. We’ll look for spring wildflowers and
wildlife along the way, and, once we’ve collected our prizes, we’ll
create a “good luck” craft.

Must register at least 3 days in advance.

----- SC/NC - The Rainbow Fish
By Dianna

The Greenville, SC, Peace Center’s youth performance series presents “The Rainbow Fish” on March 13-15. The Rainbow Fish is used to being the most beautiful creature in the ocean, so when the other fish ask her for some silver scales, she refuses. How can she sacrifice the one thing that makes her so unique? Will some good advice from the wise old Octopus persuade the Rainbow Fish to share her gifts with those around her? ArtsPower has turned Marcus Pfister’s bestselling book into a delightful and touching musical about the value of sharing true friendship with others. This ArtsPower production will be performed twice daily at 10:00 am and 12:00 pm in the Gunter Theatre and is best suited for grades K–2. The content connects to Family Relationships, Literature, Language Arts, Music, and Social Skills curriculum components. For more information call 864.679.9207 or visit their website at http://www.peacecent...g/pop/2013/fish.
