CEDAR FALLS, Iowa ï¾– 'It's A Tree's Life,' a program for children in second through fifth grades, will be offered Saturday, Nov. 16, as part of the University of Northern Iowa Children's Biology Seminar Series.

The program, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., will take place at the UNI Biology Botanical Center Greenhouse. It will be taught by Amanda Miller, a UNI biology major from Dubuque. She is a Certified Botanical Center employee who has experience as a student conservation education intern with the National Park Service.
