Event Series Event Series: Wild Wednesdays

Wild Wednesdays

August 23, 2023, 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join GPCA’s Nature Educators on Wednesday evenings to explore and discover together! We will get our hands dirty, play, and discover new things about plants, animals and nature. This is an evening of imagination and exploration sure to make Wednesday the best day of the week.

During the summer months, this program will be outside in our Play and Grow Garden, where kids can get a little wild as they climb on our tinker tree, build a fort, dig (or make cupcakes) in our pebble pond and run around. We will learn about plants, make art projects, conduct experiments to better understand nature, and much more!

Due to staff limitations, we cannot accommodate groups. Kids must be accompanied by an adult (at least one adult per 5 children). This event may be canceled in case of inclement weather. No pre-registration is required for this drop-in program, but all attendees need a general reservation to the Conservatory. Get one here on the Visit Us page!
