Are you looking for something to do this weekend? The Connecticut Science Center’s rooftop garden opens for the 2016 Season with the Family Gardening Weekend on May 14 and 15. The event is presented by the Petit Family Foundation.

Spring has finally arrived in New England. Time to get outdoors, and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

If you've never been to the Connecticut Science Center, then now's the time. Besides all the fantastic exhibits inside, they have a fabulous rooftop garden, which is open seasonally, and gives visitors birds-eye, scenic views of the Connecticut River and downtown Hartford area.

The Connecticut Science Center will celebrate Spring, and the opening of the Rooftop Garden with a Family Gardening Weekend, May 14 and 15. Making the event even more special, it's presented by the Petit Family Foundation. You're invited to plant seeds and seedlings, and participate in other “green” hands-on activities the whole family will enjoy. The rooftop garden is one of the special features that helps make the Science Center a “green” building.

We all know the weather in New England is unpredictable, so keep this in mind. The Connecticut Science Center has more than 165 hands-on exhibits that you can enjoy indoors. There's your rainy day plan too.
