Close your eyes and imagine your own tiny world, full of nature’s beauty and wonder. In the Trumbull Library One Book, One Town selection, “All the Light We Cannot See”, Marie-Laure’s father created a small-scale replica of their beloved Paris. Now you have the chance to create your own miniature wonderland at the Trumbull Nature & Arts Center! Each registered family will be provided with a container, plants and materials to make their own Miniature Fantasy Garden. Objects could include easy to maintain plants like succulents, along with model creatures and other decorative objects.

Join us on a geocaching adventure in Trumbull’s own Old Mine Park! Just like Werner used mathematical calculations to determine coordinates in the book, All the Light We Cannot See, we will search for mineralogy themed caches using the latest in GPS technology. These special caches will only be available during this exclusive, One Book, One Town event. Our instructor will teach us how to use the free app, Geocaching Intro, and guide us on our geocaching search.
