Botanical Field Trips & Outreach
Available Tuesday-Friday, Pre-Scheduled
The Botanical Conservatory is an ideal field trip destination for public, parochial, private and home school students. Teachers may choose the standards-based curriculum that best meets their students’ needs while engaging them in experiential learning about plants, biomes, soil, butterflies, scientific methods, data collection and more! Reservations must be made at least 2 weeks in advance. A 10 student minimum is required to book a lab, though self-guided visit lessons are available for smaller groups.
Downtown 4-H Club
Fourth Thursday night, monthly, 6:15-7:45 pm
Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St.
You don’t have to own a cow or know how to garden in order to join the fun and be a part of 4-H. Our downtown community 4-H club, the Clover Rovers, meet at the Botanical Conservatory led by experienced Purdue Extension volunteers. The club focuses on science, citizenship, healthy living, and fun! Any Fort Wayne area youth in kindergarten through 12th grade can join before May 15. Monthly evening meetings will offer children a chance to meet friends, learn skills, and explore ideas. Free parking at meters after 5 pm or in the Civic Center Parking Garage with validated ticket. For more information or to sign up, contact the Extension office at (260) 481-6826.
