Wild Architecture Education Program

Wild Architecture: Integrating Art & Plant Science is our new youth education program to be funded by the Batchelor Foundation, which is matching contributions we receive up to our goal of $45,000.

By taking part in Wild Architecture, students will:

  • Engage in nature-focused activities within the Garden’s dynamic tropical landscapes, utilizing the Garden’s current exhibits, such as Stickwork.
  • Observe nature’s influence on architectural designs around the world.
  • Explore the wetland ecosystem of Windows on the Floating World.
  • Learn about Easter Island through the Blume Moai Installation in our Tropical Forest (estimated to open fall 2019)

Our goal is to raise $45,000 by August 16, 2019 to support this new education initiative. As of August 1st we’re 97% there!

Will you join us? Your financial support will help cover the costs of transportation, supplies, and programming.

Here’s how you can help!
$1,000 will allow 100 students to participate.
$500 will provide bus transportation for one day.
$250 will provide supplies for three field experiences at the Garden.
$50 will sponsor one student.

Our sincere thanks to all who have donated since this fundraising campaign started in April 2019!
