Calling all aspiring gardeners! Join us at Denver Botanic Gardens on September 21, 2019 for our fourth annual Junior “Gardener” Girl Scout Exploration Day. Girl Scout Exploration Days offer girls the opportunity to explore plant-based themes through a variety of hands-on activities and take-home projects. Each Exploration Day offers several activity stations set up throughout the Gardens for groups to explore at their own pace. Pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it!
When: Saturday, September 21, 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. To accommodate a larger number of Girl Scouts and improve your group’s experience, we are offering two admission times: 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Activity stations will be available to your group from the admission time you choose until 2 p.m.
Where: Denver Botanic Gardens, activities will take place outdoors. In the event of inclement weather, activities will be moved indoors.
Who: This program is designed for Girl Scout Juniors.
Through hands-on activities and explorations Girl Scouts will:
- Explore the principles of garden design.
- Design a seed experiment to take home.
- Explore the practice of companion planting.
- Plant and decorate an indoor garden planter to take home.
- Explore the Gardens’ diverse showcase of plants.
