Children and Families
Students study botanical art.
What is better than to see a child engaged and having fun as they create their own unique masterpiece or discover why so many newts make Filoli their home? Children and their families can enjoy Filoli and its bountiful resources through interactive programming and hands–on learning designed just for them.
Our students say it best . . .
“It’s perfect each time — well executed and timely — informative and the kids loved it.” From a Nature Hike.
