Children’s Museum receives funding from Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club for outdoor exhibits

The San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum works with children to help them connect with nature and the environment through activities such as environmental science, outdoor play and gardening. At a recent Coffee in the Garden event, members of the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club visited the museum to see modifications of several outdoor exhibit spaces in the horticulture and nature-themed areas. Funds for this project were obtained, in part, from the RSF Garden Club’s grant program. An award of $9,000 was given to the museum to fund the materials needed for this outdoor education explorer series.

“Our partnership with the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club has enabled us to expand and improve our outdoor garden experience for everyone who visits the museum. Our educational Children’s Discovery Garden, Butterfly Garden, and Bugs & Soil Exhibit open the world of gardening to children of all ages and their families,” said Wendy Taylor, SDCDM’s director of Grants and Foundation Relations. “Thank you for your ongoing support of the work we do in the community.”

There will be more updates in the future on how the RSF Garden Club is contributing to the community as well as surrounding communities through charitable horticulture and charitable conservation.
