These classes are open to the public and advance registration is required. Each class is limited to 25 participants.

May - October: Garden Explorer Backpack Program

From May-October, stop by the Visitor’s Center during our business hours and check out a Garden Explorer Backpack with nature-inspired activities for children (and their families) to enjoy!

Each backpack has several children’s garden or nature books, a bird identification guide and binoculars, a mini microscope, magnifying lenses, a pictorial garden scavenger hunt, directions to build a fairy house with natural materials, equipment for leaf and bark rubbings, and more. The backpacks can be checked out for the day for FREE! Parents and/or caregivers can use the materials to explore the garden and park with children. The Visitor’s Center is open Mondays-Saturdays from 9am to 5pm and Sundays from 12pm-5pm. Here’s a sneak peek of the items waiting to be discovered by little Garden Explorers…
