Upcoming Science ATL Events

Arts & Nature Workshop: Moss Terrariums


Create and care for your own ecosystem! Local artist, Travis Ronis of Overall Designs, teaches us how he blends art and nature through building moss terrariums. Add all the elements of a thriving ecosystem, and even choose a 3-D printed figure to call your terrarium home. Join us at the Halfway Crooks Biergarten for this workshop. The Biergarten will be open for full service during the event, come hungry and thirsty!
Tickets are sold per moss terrarium. Each individual does not need to purchase a "ticket." We encourage couples, friends, and families to work collaboratively to build their terrariums.

Parking and Transportation
Parking: Utilize "Summerhill Lot A" - a large, free parking lot on the adjacent block at the corner of Georgia Ave SE and Hank Aaron Dr.

Nature Navigators: Cascade Springs


There's only one City in a Forest, and it's Atlanta. In this Nature Walk series, we'll explore nature in and around the Metro area, deepening your connection to science of the natural world along the way. Our first stop: Cascade Springs!
