Hikes for Tykes
Saturday January 31, 2015 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Meet at the Garden Railway

Take a magical, little-ones' adventure through the Garden looking for fairies, tadpoles and soft-as-velvet lamb's ears leaves - so welcoming to the touch of tiny hands.

Fresh Air Family and the Garden have partnered to bring you Hikes for Tykes, an outdoor environmental education program designed specifically for pre-school children. Hikes for Tykes was first launched at Birmingham Botanical Gardens by Fresh Air Family founder Verna Gates and has proved to be highly successful at engaging young children in outdoor exploration and hands-on activities.

Saturday, January 31, 10 am-12 pm, pre-school children, their parents and siblings are invited to join in our first Hikes for Tykes Garden walk. Come prepared to get dirty as we investigate what’s growing on at HBG each month!

Guided walks will be offered the last Saturday of every month, January through October, 2015.
