Youth Programs at MBGNA

Discover, learn, and play on our trails and in the Gaffield Children's Garden. Adventure backpacks filled with activities for self-guided fun are available during regular business hours from the front desk. We also offer several childrens' workshops and group programs.

Saturday morning programs reflect the activities offered in our newsletter, and you can sign up for them on an individual basis. If you'd like to bring a scout or youth group, our Thursday evening programs are tailored to meet badge and patch requirements.
