WORKSHOP OVERVIEW: We provide the materials; you provide the creativity!

Looking for something new, playful, and unique to do for yourself or with your friends / family this fall? Want to promote your business to museum visitors and participate in a fun, team-building activity? Then, register now for our new “Build-A-Scarecrow Workshop”! 

Your scarecrow will be displayed in our native plant garden’s “Scarecrow Garden” through November 1, 2021 – giving museum visitors a fun, outdoor stroll!

Visitors will vote on the “Scarecrow Garden Contest” post on the museum’s Facebook page by liking their favorite scarecrow’s photo. The individual or family scarecrow with the most “likes” wins one MS Museum of Natural Science Foundation Membership! All voters will be entered into a separate drawing for a chance to win one MS Museum of Natural Science Foundation Membership, too.

You can take your scarecrow and sign home or to your business on November 2, 2021 to use as a fall decoration!

Your registration fee includes: instruction by a museum educator in how to build your own scarecrow with our starter kit materials (rebar, plastic jugs and bags, bamboo poles, twine, clothes, pantyhose, straw, etc.), and a printed, laminated sign for your scarecrow. Note: If you want to build a themed scarecrow, please bring your own clothes/costume/or other materials.

Remember to register by emailing by SEPTEMBER 27 to guarantee your scarecrow and workshop space.
