10:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. 

There is so much to see, do and explore at the San Diego Botanic Garden!

We will enjoy Garden Bingo, a scavenger hunt that will take little explorers all around the Garden. Our families will be able to express themselves with paint, clay and help to create a mural for the Garden art program. Children can pot plants, climb in a tree house and watch the boats float in the stream. Don't forget to enjoy the beauty of the Butterfly Bed & Breakfast - a new enclosure for caterpillars to eat, rest, and transform into butterflies-all the stages of butterfly metamorphosis. For those really looking to explore, you could help Lucille the Lizard find her friend Leonard, who is hiding somewhere in the Garden!

Explore four miles of garden trails, enjoy restful vistas, flowering trees, majestic palms, and the nation's largest bamboo collection. Thanks to our mild climate, plants from all over the world thrive here. Our diverse topography provides a variety of microclimates giving the visitor a sensation of going from a desert environment to a tropical rainforest, all within 37 acres. The Hamilton Children's Garden, is the largest interactive children's garden on the West Coast.
