EVENTS & PROGRAMS FOR FAMILIES AND CHILDREN
GARDEN MICE ADVENTURES: SPECIAL PLACES & MAGICAL SPACES
$5 for children’s group tours ~ Meet at the Garden entrance on Military Trail
Children love discovering enchanted spaces and places to call their own! Call to arrange a special Garden tour and tailored field experience for your group with our Program Coordinator and docents/master gardeners. Interactive tours will focus on using the power of looking, investigating plants and flowers up close, observing creatures they’ll find in the great outdoors, or creating art with nature. Pre-registration is required at least three weeks prior to the tour date. Please call the Mounts office for details.
