Nature Detectives

Date(s) - Tue 10 Jun - Fri 27 Jun

Each June, children are taught about biology through games, walks and crafts. Three different biology subjects are offered and groups may register for one, two or all three topics.

Nature Detectives runs Tuesday-Friday at 9:30 am or 11 am. It is appropriate for children 4-6 years of age, and is intended for childcare groups only.


2015 Topics:

June 9-12: Ladybugs

June 16-19: A World of Colors

June 23-26: Woodland Creatures


Tour Fee:

The fee is $2 per child with a non-refundable deposit of half the expected fee due two weeks prior to each session the group will attend. Accompanying adults are required to stay with their groups to supervise and offer assistance.

Please contact the Garden at 208-343-8649 to register or to be added to the Nature Detectives mailing list.

Additional Details:

Program times are 9:30 a.m. & 11 a.m. Choose a time and day then call the Garden at 343-8649 to make a reservation. Other groups may be attending along with yours, so it is important for all groups to arrive on time. We will take reservations for a session until we reach a total of 36 children; some sessions may not reach capacity.

After an introductory activity, the children will be divided into two groups for the remainder of the program. When possible your group will be kept together. We ask that your group’s adults stay with the children and assist during the lesson.
