Make plans to join us for the day. Hands-on learning stations will be set up in the Education Yurt for students to learn about a variety of spring topics. Learning stations will be led by station guides to help direct the students' learning.

Your day doesn't stop there! Explore the gardens, go on a scavenger hunt, and find reading stations among the trees. And don't forget a picnic lunch. Hang out with other homeschool families and eat lunch in the gardens.

Garden self-directed activities are available from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm. Learning station sessions are available at 10:00 am, 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm. Pre-registration for the Learning Stations is required.

Parents are admitted free of charge to the event, but we ask that you remain with your students during the program.

Suggested for elementary aged students (K through 5th).
$5.00 per child for Arboretum Family members, $7.50 per child for nonmembers
Only 15 spots per time slot. Advance registration is highly recommended to save your spot!
