Great news for Bean Sprouts fans - with COVID restrictions lifting, we invite all families to drop by, no preregistration necessary, and we're bringing back some favorite activities in the Children's Garden!
Our garden helpers are eager to make mulch castles, weed, plant and harvest with you. You can still grab some tools at our welcome station, or bring your own to work and play in the Garden.
Dig, water, pick, build, explore and investigate in the Botanical Garden's "yes space" for kids!
Drop in any time, suitable for children of all ages.
Family Activities & Resources
Initially designed for teachers but plenty of good activities to explore your own green spaces - backyards, parks, street trees, etc.
Make a bug that you remember seeing in your own backyard, neighborhood, or at the Garden.
