Children’s Education

From nature explorations and pioneer experiences to hands-on activities in your classroom, TBG’s Children’s Education Department has it all. Our talented educators work hard to provide programs that are unique, purposeful, and fun. We know money is tight for schools and families and that free time in the school day is as rare as a hothouse orchid. Therefore, we have created an overall education program that is dynamic and effective enough to meet standards and help achieve measured results in students while still being engaging and fun. Please take the time to explore our Children’s Education Programs and feel free to contact us at (419) 536.5589 or

Demonstration Bee Hive

In June, come to Toledo Lucas County Public Library to discover the secret life of bees with a close up look inside a mobile beehive. Meet the queen, try the waggle dance, and taste foods pollinated by honeybees! Educators from Toledo Botanical Garden will bring a demonstration beehive (completely enclosed – no worries about flying guests) for all to see the inner-workings of a hive.
