The GBG's Children's Garden strives to provide youth a learning environment rich in math and science, and educators a fertile teaching ground. It's purpose is to let visitors experience and feel the garden, to enjoy the emotions of gardening and the tranquility of nature.

The GBG Children's Pond Garden

The GBG Children's Pond Garden was funded through a grant from the Alaska Science and Technology Foundation Direct Grants to Teachers program and the GBG. We built it with volunteer labor from 4-H, GBG, and friends of the GBG.
