Summer is Sizzling
in The Garden!
Summer is heating up in The Garden! The days are longer and a shady spot in The Garden is the place to be. Hoot & Holla, our resident Barn Owls, departed until next spring, but Holla left a video “Owl-bum” on their page. Of course our very own California Desert Tortoises are out and about in their Garden exhibit across from The Gift Shoppe. Also there are brand new events happening this summer, like Nature Nights with Ms. Smarty-Plants™! But that’s just the beginning. Check the calendar to see what else is happening this summer and drop by for a visit!
Ms. Smarty-Plants™ award-winning programs inspire young people through interactive and engaging hands on learning in water conservation and stewardship of the earth. Fieldtrips, Assemblies and Special Programs meet E-STEM, California State and Next Generation Science Standards. With her special mixture of music, magic and fun, Ms. Smarty-Plants™ ignites the EARTH HERO in each of us.
Take a tour of The Garden with Ms. Smarty-Plants™!
