Kids & Families
Though 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!
LET’S STAY CONNECTED!
We’d love to see photos of your family doing At-Home Nature Adventures! Post your photos and videos on Instagram and Facebook using our hashtags #LAArboretumKids and #LAArboretumAtHome for a chance to be featured on our social media pages. Don’t use social media? Just email your footage to our Youth Education Manager at email@example.com.
