Second Saturdays at Gamble are back! November’s theme is Sensational Seeds, and we’re reopening the gardens for guided tours. Online activities are also available for those who cannot attend in person.

FOR ADULTS: FREE GARDEN TOURS

Our November guided garden tour for adults will focus on the fascinating life of seeds!   Come see what is happening in the garden this month and get a look inside Elizabeth Gamble’s house.

FOR FAMILIES: FREE GUIDED NATURE HUNTS

Many creatures visit Gamble Garden for food, nesting or resting. Your family is invited to join a Gamble Garden Guide 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.

NATURE ACTIVITY TABLE: SENSATIONAL SEEDS

Our new “take away” hands-on activities let little scientists safely get up close and personal with seeds!

FALL DECOR AT GAMBLE HOUSE

Be inspired by the bright colors of fall and the stately lines of the Gamble Main House. Gamble docents have decorated the Gamble dining room with festive seasonal place settings, including stunning floral arrangements by Carmen Pekelsma, Floral Arrangement Committee Chair. The dining room will be open to visitors during this weekend’s Second Saturday event from 10:00am to 11:30am. Visitors do not have to be part of a Second Saturday tour to visit the house. There will be a limit of household at a time and tours will be given priority.
