Little ones can be scientists, too! Visit hands-on learning stations focusing on the natural world. Presented in partnership with the Atlanta Science Festival.

We may cancel or move indoors if rain, cold temperatures or inclement weather make outdoor programming impractical. To check the status, email

Activity Stations – Drop in between 10 a.m. and Noon

  • Colors of Spring – Nature produces a vibrant palette of color every Spring in Georgia. Join us as we create colorful hyacinth paintings at our art station and dissect flowers.
  • Botanical Bliss – Plant tomato, marigold, and watermelon seeds to take home and start your own garden!
  • Spring Birds – Investigate the fascinating world of animals living at the Garden. Have you ever noticed the different shapes of bird beaks? How might the shape determine what food they can eat? We’ll find out together in the Children’s Garden!
  • Pollinator Friends – Dig your hands into our “bees in a hive” sensory bins and explore our “Pollinator Dress-Up” station!
