Join us for a virtual program to celebrate Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’s birthday! Make your own truffula trees, learn about the concerns of overharvesting and how you can help speak for the trees, and then enjoy a reading of The Lorax by Dr. Seuss. Program recommended for ages 4+.

This virtual program includes hands-on materials that are scheduled to be picked-up from the Garden on Friday, February 26, and a live 45-minute virtual component through Zoom on Tuesday, March 2 at 10AM, 1PM, and 3PM.

The ticketed date is the date/time you must come to Norfolk Botanical Garden to pick-up your virtual program supplies. The virtual program requires the use of Zoom, and is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, March 2. Information on where to pick-up your supplies and the Zoom link will be included in your “know before you go” email confirmation. If you have any questions about the supplies pick-up or the virtual Zoom class, please email
