The last Leap Day was February 29th 2020, just a few weeks before the world fell apart! On that day we made a time capsule full of letters to the future and magazine articles. On February 19th, 2024 we will open the 2020 time capsule and then make another one to be opened on February 29th, 2028. Which seems impossibly far away! Leave a legacy for people to discover in 4 years! There will be snacks served and more! This is an in person program. For Teens 13+.
