School Programs

The Garden's school programs introduce children to the wonders of nature through interactive learning experiences. We hope to encourage a lifelong interest in plant science and ecology by fostering an appreciation and understanding of the natural world.

Our popular school programs are designed to align with the Science Content Standards for California Public Schools and the new California Environmental Education Initiative (EEI). 

The SBBG School Programs Guide provides information about current school programs, materials, scheduling, and fees.  For further information about school programs and to register, please contact the SBBG Education Assistant.
