Children aged 3-5 years are invited to come, with an adult, to play and learn at Idaho Botanical Garden’s Seedlings program.

During this program children will listen to a story, go on a nature walk and make a craft related to that day’s theme. The program starts at 10 a.m. and lasts for one hour.

Each child should come with an adult who will help during the activities.  There is limited space, so please register in advance.
