THE STORY:

It's back to school time, and soon the Gardens will host groups of schoolchildren from all over Los Angeles County. Descanso Gardens’ field trip program is like that proverbial little acorn – it has potential to grow into a mighty oak! Last year 8,103 youngsters enjoyed a fun and fact-filled day at Descanso – in fact, our school program has grown 50 percent in just two years. Your donation will help us raise $10,000 so we can continue to expand the program.

Students in pre-K through high school on Descanso field trips learn about ecology, plant science, biology and history -- and just enjoy a day under big old oak trees amid beautiful gardens! For many students in urban areas, a visit to Descanso Gardens is a rare chance to experience the vastness of the great outdoors, to watch squirrels skitter through tree tops and deer families snacking amid the oaks. Because of you, this “acorn program” can grow into an oak. Thank you!
