Bean Sprouts Family Days

Presented by:

The ever popular Bean Sprouts Family Days has been re-envisioned to allow us to share the Garden safely with you. We'll be piloting a new program model in July and hope you'll join us as we explore different ways of helping your family enjoy the Garden together. Bean Sprouts Family Days will shift to weekdays and families will need to pre-register, with a limited number of slots available.

 

Each pre-registered family will receive an activity bucket containing clean tools, activity suggestions, and craft materials. Specific areas in the Children's Garden have been designated "one family" zones where a family may settle, while the rest of the area is open for families to explore while respecting social distancing guidelines. You'll be able to water, dig, observe, draw, pick, and much more - our staff and volunteers will help you make the most of your family time in the Garden!
