Junior Botanists

Junior Botanist Program

Lotusland’s Junior Botanist Program, also known as Fourth Grade Outreach, 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.

Thank you for your interest in bringing your 4th grade students to Lotusland. We are currently accepting requests for the 2024 – 2025 field trip season.


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.
