Following recommendations from federal and state officials for the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of concern for our employees and guests, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens will continue its closure through May 31. If you'd like to help the Conservatory through this unprecedented challenge, please visit the Philanthropy page.

As we prepare to reopen, the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff will continue to be our top priority. Please take a minute to complete this surveyso that we can provide the best experience possible when we are able to open our doors again.

Nature School: Winter Exploration

Sprouting seeds, wiggly worms, digging dirt… Nature School provides young children with unique and meaningful opportunities to explore the world around them.

Each week children will engage in hands-on activities inside the classroom and throughout the conservatory that will nurture their curiosity, investigation, and understanding of plants, insects, and the natural world. Science, language arts, math, art, and music will be used to support learning in fun, developmentally appropriate ways. Snack included. Children must be potty trained.

Join the current Exploration at any time! Your child can attend a session that’s already in progress. Call the Education Department at 614.715.8022 to register and fees will be adjusted accordingly.
