Junior Botanists

Junior Botanists

Lotusland’s Fourth Grade Outreach Program also known as Junior Botanists, has been bringing students into Lotusland free of charge for more than two decades. It is our goal to immerse students in the natural beauty of our amazing garden with an enhanced field trip experience designed to meet the next generation science standards for fourth-grade education.

Activity Guide

Using our provided Junior Botanist Activity Guide, fourth-grade students learn about the fascinating world of plant adaptations as they navigate through the gardens on a quest to become a junior botanist.  All students, teachers and chaperones are guided by one of our highly trained docents during their visit. 


This grant funded program is open to fourth-grade classes in Santa Barbara County only and is offered on select days throughout the school year. This program is based on a first come first serve basis and can provide transportation support requested by those schools in financial need.
