Earth Day

$14 per child

Celebrate Earth Day with hands-on activities! Scouts will discover signs of spring around the Garden on a scavenger hunt, give back to the earth with a project to help improve the Garden, and save resources by reusing items to make art inspired by the beautiful gardens. Adults should plan to stay with their Scouts for the duration of the program. At least one adult chaperone for every five Scouts is required.

Parking is included for every registered Scout — this is not a drop-off program; please plan to spend the session with your Scout. If you are a group leader registering multiple children, please be sure to have at least one actively involved adult for every five Scouts and duplicate your confirmation e-mail to serve as a parking pass for drivers.
