School Vacation Week: Family Nature Discovery Walks
Join us for an afternoon of observing and making connections to our natural world, something important for both kids and adults in our busy world. Blithewold encourages the whole family to experience the beauty and renewal of the garden—not only with their eyes, but also with their ears, fingers, toes, and nose! Participants will use an included special nature observation kit that includes a magnifying glass and observation box, to explore the world around them. Gardens Manager and tour leader Gail Read will guide us toward uncovering for ourselves the sensory delights of nature.
*The tour will begin at the Rose Garden, just behind the Visitors Center. Please wear comfortable, waterproof shoes.
Feel free to arrive early and enjoy a picnic lunch on the grounds!
Admission, plus $3 Children, $5 Adults. (Pay admission at the door)

I often tell people that we’re too busy in the gardens to get out much. That might sound like a complaint but it’s not. For one thing, I hate to miss anything here, and when we do take time out to visit to another garden, it’s a huge treat and I always come back inspired. […]
