Programs for Kids, Teens & Families

"Discovery Saturdays was a lot of fun. My kids loved using binoculars to find different bird species."

The arboretum offers many programs for children ages 3 and up. Each takes advantage of our unique natural setting, whether it's examining animal adaptations in the woodland forest, facilitating seed germination in the Louise B. Roehm Greenhouse, or taking part in a physical activity on the Great Lawn. The Discovery Saturdays program is the perfect way for a busy family to escape a hectic weekday schedule and reconnect with each other and nature through hands-on learning.

Check the calendar for upcoming program listings.
