For Children


Calling all SAPLinGS! Join us for Science, Art and PLay in Garden Spaces beginning June 23 at San Diego Botanic Garden. We’ll have all your favorites including Model Trains, Toddler Tales and Tunes, and new activities galore. Help us garden in our Incredible Edibles Garden, learn cool science, and make art. Play in Toni’s Treehouse, make music, and splash in our mountain stream to cool off!
