Come to Van Vleck and visit our Education Center anytime between 10 am to 1:00 pm. An environmental educator will discuss various topics relating to nature in and around the gardens. A simple craft will be offered, as well as supplies for a self-guided activity on the property. Everything you need to enjoy quality time with your family is here. Activities are designed for children ages 4 and up; however, all are welcome. All children must be supervised by an adult. Rain or shine.
