Join us in the Lena Meijer Children’s Garden for Backpack Adventures! These discovery walks, led by Art & Garden Play Activity Leaders, conclude with a story time and provide a fun way to explore art and horticulture with “Big Kid” backpack tools. Pick your favorite theme to attend or join us for all five walks. Pack your backpack with a few key tools from home and join us in the Children’s Garden Entry Plaza. An adventure awaits you!

NOTE: Walks are 15 to 20 minutes in length and include a story time highlighting the theme of the walk. Dress for the weather, as activities are outdoors. Masks required. Ideal for preschool and up, but all ages are welcome!
