Youth & Family

Youth and family class topics mirror adult programming with subjects such as arts, nature, gardening, skill-building, and more. Current offerings are limited due to the pandemic but look for more classes soon. Classes are taught by community educators and 577 staff. Class sizes are small and may take place in the Cottage, House, and outdoors around the beautiful gardens and grounds of 577.
