They’re crazy about cranberries at the South Shore Natural Science Center! From 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., kids of all ages can drop-in and learn about what it means if one cranberry bounces and another doesn’t? Do white cranberries taste different from red?

The fee is $5 for members, $8 for non-members and it’s free for Veterans with a military ID card.  http://southshorenaturalsciencecenter.org/event/crazy-about-cranberries-3/
