Paxton Gate has always felt like the Mission’s own natural science museum: wall-mounted taxidermy, spooky animal skulls, fossils. The store also holds terrarium classes. Sixty bucks gets you two hours with a plant pro plus all you’ll need to make your own botany bubble. Using forceps, students pluck tiny succulents from pots and carefully nestle them into 6-inch glass globes, which you can take home and hang over your kitchen window. Register soon—classes are capped at 12, and they fill up months in advance.
