Garfield Park Conservatory is a fantastic place to bring family members of all ages. Something’s always growing, and there’s always something new to discover! To make your “growing” experience here even more enjoyable, we offer a number of special educational opportunities FREE for kids and families!
At this time, all of our programming is on hold for the remainder of 2020. Please check the COVID-19 Updates page for more updated information.
Looking to bring the experience of the Conservatory’s Family Programs home? Check this website and follow us on social media as we post videos and activities to families to do at home.
Each month we dig into a different theme for Morning Glories and Fiddleheads, and use the plant collection as a platform for our exploration. From texture to color, shading and symmetry, our plants exemplify it all! See below for a full list of our monthly themes.
