    Parent/Child Program

    Designed to provide outdoor, nature-based learning experiences for babies, toddlers, and children up to the age of 5, Acorns & Oaks is a unique, homegrown, parent-child educational program that is rooted in whole-child philosophy & developmental play. The goal is to help our little acorns grow into mighty oaks!  Acorns & Oaks fosters parent and child bonding through tactile play with nature, crafts, songs, stories, and sensory integration. Starting November, you can experience this wonderful program in the beautiful gardens of the Arboretum!

    WHOLE-FAMILY YOGA

    In this gentle, all-levels yoga series, we explore a nature-based theme each week with a correlating technique. Themes include Earth, Air, Mountains, and Fire. Immersed in the Arboretum’s natural tranquility, we will use our imaginations to deepen our body’s capacity to heal and strengthen itself while working on our grounding, calming, focus, and concentration. With the goal of building the strength of the Whole Family, everyone is welcome.

    ARBORETUM NATURE KIDS

    FALL 2020 ONSITE PROGRAM

    Arboretum Nature Kids is a school-year enrichment program designed to provide children with joyful experiences in nature, exciting hands-on activities, and meaningful peer interactions, all in a safe setting.  By integrating playful exploration of our gardens with nature-themed science and art activities, Arboretum Nature Kids unlocks entirely new avenues for children to learn and explore at their own pace while fostering socialization and healthy child development.

    AT HOME NATURE ADVENTURES

    Though many our onsite programs are paused, the Arboretum is committed to helping children and families explore the joy of nature-based learning. From the scientific to the whimsical, our new At Home Nature Adventures offer hands-on activities designed for kids and families to connect to nature and all its magic! Programs can easily be done in any living environment, can be adapted to different ages and skill levels, and simply require nature, some common household materials, and imagination! Thanks to Edison International and Rotary Club of Arcadia, sponsors of At Home Nature Adventures.
