For storytelling or gardening, Voelker Orth Museum is the place to be this spring. The Victorian garden and bird sanctuary, on the grounds of a centuries-old Victorian home in Flushing, has become the habitat to a variety of birds, including orioles, mockingbirds and hummingbirds, as well as local species, such as cardinals and blue jays. The gardens also boast many butterfly bushes that attract monarchs and swallowtails as well as a colony of honey bees.

On “Gardening Day” (April 1, from 2 to 4:30 pm) children and their parents can get a great crash course in city and suburban yardwork. Whether you have a terrace, backyard, or even a window box, you will get helpful tips from experts on everything from preparing a spring garden to refreshing houseplants. At the end of the program you get to take home seeds and seedlings. Admission is $3 for members and $4 for non-members; Children are free.

Resident storyteller Dr. Marge Hendler tells tales to little ones 6 and younger during “Storybook Discovery” on April 14 from 11 am to noon.

Best of all, admission is a $1 donation!

“Gardening Day” on April 1 from 2 to 4:30 pm and “Storybook Discovery” time on April 14, from 11 am to noon at the Voelker Orth Museum, 149-19 38th Ave. At 149th Place in Flushing, (718) 359-6227. www.vomuseum.org.
