Gamble Garden welcomes you to spend a beautiful January 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. This month’s theme is “Tremendously Terrific Trees!”
For Adults: Free Garden Tour at 10 AM
Our January guided garden tour for adults will focus on “Winter Glory: The Trees of Gamble 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.
