  • Our Family Adventure Classes for 2019

    Join our amazing instructors as we explore the Arboretum.  Each month we explore something new and exciting and will have a different theme relating to nature (see schedule below). Family adventure classes are for children ages 7-11 (Saturday, September 22 and Saturday, October 6th  are for 6 and under).  Children must be accompanied by an adult and because younger siblings can be a distraction we ask that a second adult takes them to do their own personal exploration of the Arboretum while the class is in session.  You can also check out our Bookworms Program for younger children.

    Enrollment includes admission to the Arboretum and all materials. Pre-registration required for all classes. Questions? Please call the Education Department at 626.821.4623
