NatureKid To-Go Kit: Nature Scientists

Nature Education Program

Friday, April 23
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Plant Scientist kit includes an air plant, lima beans for a dissection lab, materials for a seed growth experiment, and a tree cookie. Plant Scientist Workbook/owl pellet not pictured.

Become a nature scientist this spring! Dissect a seed, learn why plants need light to grow, count tree rings, dissect an owl pellet, and complete other fun plant experiments. Recommended for ages 6+ with some caregiver participation. 

To-go kits are scheduled to be picked up from the Garden, and completed at home. Each kit includes instructions on how to access additional materials on Google Classroom.

Not able to pick-up a kit on the scheduled date? No problem! After you purchase your kit, email with the date you will be available to pick-up your order.


In compliance with Virginia’s mandates regarding masks/face coverings, NBG commits to the following:

  • All guests and volunteers ages 5+ are required to wear a protective mask that covers the mouth and nose when entering any NBG building or structure including outdoor restrooms.
  • Our youngest visitors, “Sprouts” over the age of two, are strongly encouraged to wear a mask in compliance with current CDC health and safety recommendations.
  • Guests are asked to bring their own personal facemask. NBG has a very limited supply of disposal masks available upon request at the Guest Services desk in Baker Hall.
  • Face coverings shall also be required when patrons are outdoors if a distance of six feet from other persons, not associated with one household, cannot be maintained.


Price for NBG Members:  $10/kit.

Price for Not-yet Members: $15/kit. To-go kits do not include Garden admission.
