Leach Botanical Gardens

 Leach Botanical Gardens
6704 S.E. 122nd, Portland, Oregon
Phone:  503-823-9503

Their Mission:
"Leach Botanical Garden's living collections of plants for the purposes of education, 
research and conservation and preserves the legacy of the
 Garden’s founders, John and Lilla Leach."

It had been a long time since I visited Leach Botanical Gardens.
What took me there was the Honeybee Hike for 2-5 year olds.
I wasn't disappointed and neither were the little ones.
There was a short hike up the hill to a meadow just for kids.
There were stories to hear, worms to hold, a carrot to pull from the garden,
and a visit with a dinosaur. 
The hike takes place most Wednesdays from 10-11AM.
The cost is $3 per child with accompanying adult being free.

It won't be so long the next time I visit for my little one asked to return.
Next time we will hike further and look for the stone cottage tucked in amongst the trees.

How fun to enjoy a Honeybee Hike with little ones! Their program sounds so interesting for children aged 2-5.
