Kids in the Garden: Birds, Nests and Feathers

July 14 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn about our feathered friends and their special adaptations that help them survive with Farmer Jones. We have hummingbirds, hawks, roadrunners, ducks, mockingbirds, and bluebirds that visit or call the Gardens home. Should be a fun day in the Gardens and nature! Farmer Jones will emphasize hands-on discovery and fun for all!

Class fee is $5 child and $5 per adult for Garden entry. Adults will stay with their children. The class is free for AVBG members. All fees collected will support the Alta Vista Children’s Garden. Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is in our TENTH year of getting kids outdoors to discover their environment, enjoy nature, dig into gardening, learn about natural resources, and to share art and music. Come join us!

Pre-registration with Farmer Jones is required so we have materials for all. Contact farmerjonesavbg@gmail.com or call (760) 822-6824.

The Gardens are open every day for a $5 entry fee, free for members.
Vendors and Volunteers welcome – please contact farmerjonesavbg@gmail.com

Your registration for the class includes your visit to the Children’s Garden: the Ricardo Breceda “Serpent,” the Enchanted Garden Tube Tunnels, our fantastic Fall Fun Festival scarecrows, the interactive Children’s Music Garden, the Turtle and Dino Dig, and the Incredible Edibles Garden and your self-guided tour of the 14-acre Gardens.

When you join and buy a family membership in Alta Vista Botanical Gardens, the monthly Kids in the Garden class and entry to the Gardens are FREE for a year. Membership forms are available on the website. Donations and sponsorships are gratefully accepted.

School field trips, Scout badge sessions, and club tours are available for a reasonable fee. Farmer Jones is a retired elementary teacher with 28 years’ experience in the classroom. She is a Master Composter who has been working in school gardens and children’s gardens for 44 years.

Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is located at the top of the hill inside Brengle Terrace Park.
