The Myriad Botanical Gardens’ Rainforest Ecology Activity Program (REAP) is designed to reinforce the PASS objectives (Priority Academic Student Skills), national science and state education standards.
The program concentrates on specific themes in biology and ecology while employing a hands-on, inquiry-based approach. Classes are geared toward second and fourth grade, but can translate up to sixth grade.
Classes are offered at 10am every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday throughout the school year. Call (405) 445-7080 to sign your class up today!
No time for an ecology class? No problem. Schools are always invited to tour the Crystal Bridge. Pick up a self-guided tour brochure and lead an exploration past towering palms, behind crashing waterfalls and along winding paths. No reservations required, but advance notice is appreciated.
The Myriad Botanical Gardens is located at Reno and Robinson in downtown Oklahoma City. All day parking is available on Sheridan Ave. Two-hour parking is available on SW 2nd and Harvey avenues. Metro Transit’s Road Scholars program is a great option for getting students to and from the Gardens. At only $.60 per students, it’s economical, too.
