While we have not been able to see all of you at the Garden, we hope you have connected with the plants in your life and enjoyed learning at home with us through our children’s educational series, Fun at Home, with activity sheets and videos.

This time has given us the opportunity to think about how we can continue our learning programs when you are not with us at the Garden. We are always brainstorming ways to bring the Garden to each and every audience.

For example, we are missing having hundreds of students exploring the spring blooms and pollinators of the Garden in person for our Pollinators and Climate Change Challenge program. The program strives to educate underserved elementary students in the importance and relationship between flowers, pollinators, and climate change in our daily lives. We are very excited to see the students back in the program next year, whether at the Garden or via distance learning, with the generosity of the SDG&E Environmental Champions Grant.

We love our pollinators at San Diego Botanic Garden, so check out these Fun at Home activities to help you discover, observe, and support pollinators at your home:

Bee Posters

We look forward to engaging learners of all ages, whether it be virtually or back at the Garden.
