Family Workshops

Celebrate the changing seasons with family fun at the Gardens! Family Workshops are a great way for families to spend time together while discovering the diversity and importance of plants. Workshops offer families a hands­-on opportunity to learn about the science and enchantment behind the plants in our everyday lives, to create tasty treats from scratch and to explore the natural world. Classes are designed for families with children ages 5-10. Pre­registration is required and class size is limited.


Family Fun Nights

Family Fun Nights are a unique opportunity to explore nature at night in the Mordecai Children’s Garden. Each month brings a new theme with performers in Sagebrush Stage, activities in the garden, snacks and other fun night time activities. Families are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner (no glass allowed) to enjoy in the Children’s Garden.
