Young scientists are invited to make their own nature discoveries on a free, fun visit to the Discovery Garden. Students solve plant mysteries and sharpen science skills as they explore the garden’s habitats and visit hands-on, docent-facilitated discovery stations.
Groups visiting the Discovery Garden during peak hours (April 1–November 6, Tuesday–Friday, 9:30 a.m.–1 p.m.) must register for a time slot. Registration coming soon.
On inclement weather days, groups may still visit the Discovery Garden and explore the hands-on exhibits, but docent-led discovery stations will not be offered.
During off-peak seasons and afternoons, visits to the Discovery Garden are first come, first served, no preregistration needed. Discovery stations are not available.
