NEW for Spring 2021. A family program with hybrid virtual/in-person experience for young children and their families.
We invite you to be part of a connected community of like-minded families that value nature-based, whole child, sensory-rich educational experiences.
- Time: Thursdays, May 20th-June 17th, 10:30 am or 1:00 pm
Looking for thoughtful and exciting ways to explore the gardens with your children? The Bedrock Gardens' Young Botanist Club invites you to interact with the gardens through a series of curated horticultural activities and botanical lenses. Each week there will be a different theme to explore, with activity instructions and materials provided. Participants will be invited to explore different locations in the garden, safely within their own “family pod,” guided by the activities and materials provided by the Bedrock education staff. Activity kits will be picked up at the front entrance at the registered time (morning or afternoon). Pack a picnic and spend a wonderful afternoon at the gardens. Education staff will be on hand to answer any questions and guide you along.
Ages: Program materials are designed for young children Pre-K and Kindergarten, accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Cost: $12, members. $15, non-members (for each adult with children).
Price listed is for one family.
Time: Thursdays, May 20th-June 17th, 10:30 am or 1:00 pm
- Pre-registration is required and will close at 9 am on the day of the program.
- Each week’s program must be registered individually.
