Youth & Family Educational Programming

Fund for Educational Programming

Each new year brings new opportunities, and this year we had a fresh new approach to much of our youth programming!

In the past, we have held summer 3-day camps, day camps as well as arts and crafts activities and field trips out to the garden. 

If you have enjoyed some of our traditional programs have no fear, we are starting a new backpack program this year. This program is meant to be self-guided and teach kids to learn something new each week in the garden. The backpacks will have a different activity placed in the backpacks each week when they come into McCrory our Education Coordinator will hand them their backpack and then they are free to explore and complete the activities in the bag. At the end of their outside adventure, they will return the backpacks to the front desk and then the next week will have a new set of activities in their bag when they return. 

This year we will kick-off summer’s programming with our annual Garden Discovery Festival on May, 15 2022. The Festival is part of National Public Gardens Week, celebrated in public gardens around the nation. The Festival is a fun-filled way to learn and interact with the gardening and natural world.
