June Second Saturday: Family Summer Solstice Celebration

June Second Saturday: Family Summer Solstice Celebration


Saturday, June 11, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Gamble Garden welcomes you to spend a beautiful June morning with us exploring the sun and all things solar. Second Saturdays are free and open to all.


Guided Tours and Nature Hunts. Come get your “nature eyes” working and join a guide as we explore throughout the garden.

Solar Activity Stations. Visit activity stations throughout the garden that highlight the Sun and the role of leaves as food factories. You’ll learn about sundials, prisms, solar panels, and more!

Solar Viewing Telescopes. San Mateo County Astronomical Society will be on hand with solar viewing telescopes enabling you to safely see live images of the Sun, solar flares, and sunspots. *Remember: never look directly at the Sun with the unaided eye, as eye damage may occur*

Visit Elizabeth’s House. Walk through Elizabeth’s house, built in 1902, and get a look into the early days of Palo Alto. Our docents will be on hand to answer questions and share stories of old. *Gamble Garden follows Santa Clara County Public Health Department COVID-19 requirements and guidelines. Masks are strongly recommended indoors but are not required. *


Second Saturday is free and appropriate for all ages. Ideal for ages 3-12! Register for timed entry at 10, 10:30, and 11 AM. Register in advance or at the door. We look forward to seeing you on Second Saturday!
