KINGSTON, R.I. -- March 22, 2001 -- What do birds, bees, and apple trees have in common? The answer is the University of Rhode Island.
The URI Cooperative Extension Education Center is again offering its popular environmental education program by that name for children ages 7 to 12 during the April school vacation.
"Birds, Bees, and Apple Trees" is an opportunity for children to participate in hands-on explorations of the natural world in the gardens and greenhouses on URI's Kingston campus.
Children can sign up for one, two or three mornings. Pre-registration is required. The program will run April 18, 19, and 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. The fee is $12 per morning or $35 for three days.
