Family Programs

With a variety of programs throughout the year aimed at families looking for hands-on activities and educational experiences at VanDusen Botanical Garden, we’re looking forward to helping you and your children get into nature, together!

Preschool Wonder Walk: Fantastic Flowers

Wednesday July 27, 10.00am – 11.30am

A guided preschool program for age 3-5 children and their parents/caregivers.

Enjoy the beauty and fragrance of flowers throughout VanDusen Botanical Garden, while exploring the rainbow of summer colours.  We will search for pollinators in action – honeybees, bumblebees, butterflies and hummingbirds – while being led in interactive play-based activities, close observation of the natural world, and a take-home art activity.
