Join us Wednesday evenings and let your kids get a little wild! Whether we’re inside or out, we will be exploring nature, getting our hands dirty, and discovering new things about plants, animals and nature. In the winter months, we bring animal guests every 2nd and 4th Wednesday! Can you find and identify fake bugs in our dig pit? What about going on an adventure through the Conservatory to find rare and unusual plants? This is an evening of imagination and exploration sure to make Wednesday the best day of your child’s week! Drop in with your young one and let the learning begin!


During the cooler months of the year we’re inside in the Elizabeth Morse Genius Children’s Garden where kids can learn about different animals, make observations, become a chef in our soil kitchen and have an animal encounter! Please note that animal guests will will only occur twice a month starting in November.

2018 Animal Schedule:

To be announced soon!



In the warmer months we’re outside in our Play and Grow Garden where kids can get a little wild as they climb on our tinker tree, build a fort, dig in our pebble pool and run around! We’ll also be growing our own edible garden with kids’ help, conducting experiments to better understand nature, and much more!

*Due to staff limitations, we cannot accommodate groups. Kids must be accompanied by an adult (at least one adult per 5 children).
