Two Great Locations, One Organization

Youth Education

Discover, learn, and play on our trails and in the Gaffield Children’s Garden. Adventure backpacks filled with activities for self-guided fun are available during regular business hours from the front desk. We also offer several childrens’ workshops and group programs.

Saturday morning programs reflect the activities offered in our newsletter, and you can sign up for them on an individual basis. Summer guided youth programs include a range of activities from pond dipping to learning about butterflies.

Learn more about and register for upcoming Saturday morning programs.
