About the Garden

Since its creation in 2019, our garden serves local wildlife, student education, and the Pasadena community. Students see the seasons change, experience life cycles of plants, insects, and birds in real time, and investigate relationships among life in our native ecosystems. By interacting with the natural world, we see students develop a love of natural things and a deep-seated desire to protect them. Take the opportunity to visit our garden where we’ll share our collection of bird feathers and nests to practice your bird knowledge and observe all the bird activity!
