The Discovery Garden

We're making changes!

The Discovery Garden is being redesigned to make way for Walk through the Watershed. This new exhibition will feature updated displays, school programs, teen volunteer opportunities, teacher training, web resources, and much more! Thanks to the Steinmetz Foundation, Ji Ji Foundation, and Towbes Foundation for their generous support as we work to transform this Arroyo Section exhibition. The goal for Walk through the Watershed is to reach beyond the Garden's borders and support healthy ecosystems. We are offering this new place-based approach to demonstrate the connections from wildland to urban environments.

For more information or to get involved, contact Frederique Lavoipierre, Director of Education.
