Opportunities for Education
The footprints of our educational endeavors are ubiquitous throughout the Gardens. From a one-hour eye-opening tour of the grounds to our three-month Master Gardener program, the Gardens serve local and visiting communities as a living museum and research facility. The Gardens uses its exhibits, workshops, docent-led tours, and interpretative materials to educate visitors, grade-school children, interns, and others on the benefits of a conservation-minded society. Educational opportunities the Gardens offer include a variety of workshops on diverse topics, bird and whale watching walks and talks, mushroom identification, and a working demonstration organic vegetable garden that helps sustain our local Food Bank. With the prospect for education woven into the entire visitor experience, including through nationally recognized collections, the Gardens is a leader in providing local environmental knowledge.
Educational/student groups of all ages receive free admission if scheduled in advance with our administrative offices. To request free admission as an Educational Organization, please complete the Educational Visit Request form. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 707-964-4352 ext. 10.
