Powell Gardens offers a variety of themed program options for youth in grades K-5, perfect for school or scout groups. Each guided program is 90 minutes and incorporates field journals, nature investigations, science skills, and nature games. These standards-based school programs are designed to supplement science content covered in the classroom with fun and engaging learning activities. Once the program is finished, spend the day touring the other garden areas and nature trail. Ample space is available for each group to enjoy lunch after their program.
Guided programs must be reserved at least two weeks in advance of the desired date and are scheduled weekdays between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. These programs require a group minimum of 10 students and a maximum of 60 students per time slot. Teachers receive free admission.
Guided tours are usually 90 mins and in the morning, so there is no need for lunch at the gardens.
Bathrooms are located around the grounds.
