As flowers bloom around VanDusen Botanical Garden, it’s the perfect setting for elementary students to learn about pollinators and the environments that support them. Bring your class on a walk through the Garden, and our facilitators will promote curiosity and stewardship through fun hands-on activities. You will be given a map outlining our stations, and may explore at your own pace during the day. Join us from 10am – 2pm alongside community partners such as Border Free Bees, Environmental Youth Alliance, and the Honey Bee Centre.
Please note that pre-registration is required. Register before April 30th and receive $2 off per student!
