Let’s Explore at Fairchild (LEAF), a program for children and families, and consists of themed activities ensuring that kids receive as broad a botanical learning experience as possible. The program takes place at The Learning Garden and Hsiao Labs and are instructed by Fairchild staff and trained volunteers. Children have the option of rotating through various stations where they can work with crafts, play science-themed games, complete fun and educational worksheets, participate in planting activities, work as a scientist in our labs and more.
LEAF is free for Fairchild Members and is included with Garden admission. Registration is not required. It is open for children of all ages, but parents/guardians must accompany children at all times.
