New for the 2018 season is our weekend Backpack Program. The program is designed so parents and children can self-explore the garden. Each backpack contains activities designed for kids to deepen their experience in the garden, through learning and self-discovery.

The fee is a $2.00 for the general public, in addition to the admission fee, and $1.00 for family season pass holders. We kindly ask that upon purchase you leave your drivers license at the front desk to ensure the backpack is returned.

PLEASE NOTE this program has been delayed, stay tuned for the new launch date. Sorry for the inconvenience.
