Growing Together at Moody Gardens

Growing Together at Moody Gardens

Moody Gardens has partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association to provide an educational program offered to individuals with early onset Alzheimer’s and one family member or caretaker. Growing Together at Moody Gardens is a hands on, interactive learning experience using arts and crafts, exotic animal experiences, tours through sections of our exhibits and attractions, Moody Gardens staff presentations and much more!

By participating in Growing Together at Moody Gardens, caretakers and family members can use these monthly programs as a fun and exciting topic to reflect back on and discuss in their spare time.
