It’s never too early to discover the wonders of nature! There are still spaces available in our winter and early spring Seedlings Classes. Seedlings classes offer our youngest visitors (ages 18 months to six years) the opportunity to explore, discover and create alongside their caregivers and peers in the safe and nurturing environment of the Morrison Discovery Greenhouse and Mordecai Children’s Garden.

Each week our nature-based classes explore a new theme. Our teachers will guide you and your budding naturalist through an interactive and engaging curriculum. If you have a budding naturalist who loves to read stories, embark on nature walks, create unique pieces of art, taste yummy garden treats, plant seeds and meet garden critters, then these classes are for you!

To come to one of our three weekly classes, you can register online. Each class is modified to fit the developmental needs of the group. Special 16-week discounted series pricing is available.
