ENJOY HOLIDAY EXCITEMENT AT GAMBLE GARDEN

Gamble Garden welcomes you to spend a beautiful December morning with us! Explore our unique three-acre garden on a guided garden tour for adults or nature hunt for families. Enjoy hands-on activities and holiday music. Second Saturdays are free and open to all.

For Adults: Free Garden Tour at 10 AM

Our December guided garden tour for adults will focus on the garden in winter in conjunction with our ever popular holiday greens sale. Come enjoy a guided walk through the solstice beauty of the garden.

For Families: Free Guided Nature Hunts at 10, 10:30 and 11 AM

Many creatures visit Gamble Garden for food, nesting or resting. Join Garden Director Richard Hayden and our Garden Guides as we explore the many animals and plants that can be found throughout the garden. We’ll get our “nature eyes” working as we explore, look for birds and pollinators, overturn rocks and logs, and discover the many different ways the garden provides habitat for animals, both big and small.  The Nature Hunt is ideal for families with children ages 3-10.

Hands-on activities let little scientists get up close and personal with the winter garden!
