Honeybee Hikes at the Leach Botanical Garden

Contact Information


Come explore the gardens on Wednesday mornings!

Your little one will look for wildlife, listen to the wind and the creek, touch a thimble-berry leaf, water the Children's Discovery Garden and maybe even eat a raspberry right off the vine!  Our wonderful guides will then read a story and help the children craft something fun. Each week is different with seasonal themes.

Wednesdays 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. 

2-5 year olds, each child must be accompanied by an adult.

This year, hikes begin Wednesday February 6, 2019 and end December 10, 2019.

Cost: $3.00 per child, non-walkers and adults free. Please bring exact change. Punch cards now available in the Gift Shop next to the Manor House: buy 5 hikes and get 6th one FREE! 

  • We start promptly and split into smaller groups as needed.
  • For possible cancellations, please call or check main website.
  • Please dress for the weather as we hike rain or shine. 

Please note: The Honeybee Hike meets and starts in the Upper Garden. Please park in the Claybourne parking lot - look for parking signage at corner of 122nd/Claybourne St. just south of Foster Rd.   

  • From SE Foster Rd. turn south onto 122nd Ave. (continuing past the sign that says the road is closed to through traffic).
  • Take the first left at the Leach Botanical Garden Administrative Office sign onto SE Claybourne (gravel road). Follow this road through the chain link gate. 
  • Park in the gravel lot and then enter the Garden on the south side of the lot.
