Huntington Gardens

Adaptations in a Changing World

The Huntington is a research and educational center set amidst 120 acres of breathtaking gardens. Three art galleries and a library showcase magnificent collections of paintings, sculptures, rare books, manuscripts, and decorative arts. The botanical collection features over 14,000 different species of plants.

A private, nonprofit institution, The Huntington was founded in 1919 by railroad and real estate developer Henry Edwards Huntington and opened to the public in 1928.

Students explore adaptations that have allowed plant populations to thrive around the world. By comparing plants in the gardens, students will relate plants’ adaptations to their native habitats and predict how plant forms help them function in a changing environment.

On Thursday, May 15, 2014, third-grade students will be traveling to the world-renowned Huntington Gardens to discover how plants adapt to their environment. Students will be departing La Cañada Preparatory at 9:00 a.m. and returning to campus at 1:00 p.m. Students will need to bring a sack lunch, including snack and drinks, in a clearly labeled disposable bag.
