School Programs:

Plant Adaptation
(In-person, Grades 1-4)

Students will discover the different adaptations of plants in both the desert and rainforest habitats through a 1-hour guided exploration.
(Available January 2022)

Pollinators and Climate Change Challenge (In-person and Virtual, Grades 2-5)

Students will explore the mechanism of pollination, causes and impacts of climate change, as well as possible solutions to help conserve pollinators.
Through the generous funding of SDG&E’s Environmental Champions Program, we are able to offer both virtual and in-person versions of our Pollinators and Climate Change Challenge program to Title 1 schools.

The virtual program will consist of resources for teachers to use as part of their classroom lessons, as well as the opportunity for a live virtual visit with an educator here at the Garden. We will have supplies for each class available for pick-up or delivery to your school.
(Available April-June 2022)
