Lil' Buds

Wednesdays, May 31 through August 9

10:30AM - Noon (Ages 3-4)

Bring your preschooler to a pint-sized class with our educators in Red Butte Garden's Lil' Buds program.

Lil’ Buds classes are offered every week for five weeks. Classes feature a special exploration in the Garden, a fun craft or activity, a snack, and an engaging story connected to our age-appropriate themes. All classes are designed for caregivers to attend and participate with their child.

Classes can be taken in the full series of five or individually. Our goal is to help your child make new friends, prepare for preschool, and develop curiosity while exploring the natural world. Classes are designed for BOTH a child and a caregiver to attend.

Individual Class Cost Per Child (caregiver included): $16 for members; $20 for General Public
