Event description

Description

Urban Advantage Family Science Day will be a fun-filled day for families. We will be hosting a wide variety of activities for families with elementary and middle school students as they explore our 39 acres. Participants engage in fun science activities, including creating a "pizza garden,” gardening with herbs and spices, making herbal scents to take home, exploring compost critters, and much more.

We need volunteers from 10am to 3pm to assist in leading the activities, ushering, and providing directions to guests of the event. Lunch will be provided!

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Volunteering includes free Garden admission, so please enjoy the space after our event!

QBG is a living museum, a collection of gardens for the study, culture, exhibition, and display of plants. We encourage our visitors to explore, enjoy, and be respectful of our plant collections and to be considerate of fellow guests as well. For more guidelines on garden etiquette, click here.
