Virtual Workshop: "The Four Seasons"
Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens is a 48-acre botanical garden located in Devon, PA. Visitors are welcomed into the gardens every day of the year to enjoy a collection of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and ferns in a tranquil, naturalistic landscape. In addition to plants native to the eastern United States, Jenkins also features an accredited, world-class collection of rhododendrons and azaleas from across the globe.
Join us on May 18, 2021 at 10 am as we take a virtual tour through Four Seasons at Jenkins Arboretum and Gardens.
We will start off by taking a look back in time at the founding of the gardens over 45 years ago, and then revisit some of the major garden developments over the years. Finally, we will take time for a virtual stroll through the gardens throughout the seasons, enjoying everything from the vibrancy of spring azalea blooms to the contemplative architecture of winter trees.

VIRTUAL EVENT SERIES
Virtual Workshop: "Defining Justice"
Eastern State Penitentiary, an abandoned prison turned criminal justice museum, is one of the top tourist destinations in Philadelphia. As the first true penitentiary in the world, this is definitely the place to examine the past and present of criminal justice reform and consider: What comes next?
On Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at 10am we will participate in one of their most popular virtual workshops, “Defining Justice.” This interactive program explores prison's past and present, and utilizes inquiry-based learning to catalyze conversation about what justice means to each of us.
We will meet and discuss with staff leaders in Education and Tour Programs who built the new virtual classroom visits. In the process, they navigated teaching social justice programming against the backdrop of a global pandemic, a summer of protests, and the recent 2020 election.
In addition, we will learn about Eastern State’s role as a ‘fair chance’ employer and its focus on hiring formerly incarcerated people onto the Education team. To learn more about Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site, please visit www.easternstate.org.
Registration is open! (Closing Monday, Feb. 1, 2021).
