Studying the Rainforest?
Make the Ann Goldstein Children’s Rainforest Garden the focal point of your visit to Selby Gardens. This field study option introduces students to the elements of an Asian rainforest as you tour the towering bamboo grove, koi pond, and fern garden. Next, explore the elevated Children’s Rainforest Garden which provides a unique perspective from within Selby’s magnificent banyan trees…a memorable way to experience the power and magic of the rainforest without having to travel there.

Complement your Rainforest-focused tour with one of the following add-on performances:
- Project Rainforest: Visit a rain forest through conservationist Bruce Segal’s engaging personal accounts and unique presentation combining audience simulations and prop demonstrations. This program, held in the Ann Goldstein Rainforest Garden, will engage students’ senses, and offer DIY ways to protect the planet. (K-12) (additional fee will apply)
- Rainforest Birds: Provide your students with an up-close rainforest birds encounter (EX: macaws and cockatoos)- ask us for more information.
