Lantern festivals are a central part of Chinese culture and date back thousands of years. Join us as this ancient tradition comes to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden where you will see over 20 sets of lanterns crafted from silk, wire and steel and where you can spend an evening filled with fun, food, and adventure. This event offers visitors the opportunity to experience an event rarely staged outside of Asia.

Tarrant County College Northeast Campus

Class taught 3 afternoons: March 18, 20, 22, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Annabelle Corboy and Martha Siegel are teaching a hands-on workshop in which students will download and learn to use free Smartphone Apps that can help them explore and document the natural world. The focus will be on iNaturalist, using it to post observations and help identify them. Some of the most powerful aspects of iNaturalist are only available through the website, so we will take a look at those features as well.

We will also look at Merlin Bird ID and AllTrails. If time and weather permit, the last class will include a field trip to a nearby park.

Students must have a Smartphone. Both Androids and iPhones will be supported. This class is part of the Senior Education program at Tarrant County College and is open to citizens 55 and older.
