Make A Difference! MAD lessons on wildlife by Cicada Tree Eco-place and generously supported by Intel will be conducted at the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden.

This environmental education program is suitable for kids aged 5 to 10, from kindergarten to primary school.

Through MAD lessons for wildlife, kids will learn about “OOH--Our Only Home” (Planet Earth) by learning about animals, plants and ecology in a session of 1.5 hours. They will also learn about our “warming world” and our carbon footprint and how this affects the lives of plants, animals, humans and our environment. Kids will learn easy eco-actions to make a difference for earth.

Kids pay $15 for a 1.5 hour session at the Children's Garden. Maximum number for a group sign-up (e.g. school groups and groups from organizations) is 20 and minimum fee to run is $300 (even if a group is less than 20 kids). For weekend individual sign-ups, kids pay $15 each.
A button-badge and an information pamphlet will be given to all registered kids.
