New! Looking for a great way to have some fun while getting to know native plants? Try our Scavenger Hunts!
Use your phone to click on the link below (no software downloads required!) and be guided through a step-by-step hunt through the garden, with plenty of clues about where to find plants and trees. Learn the identity of native plants and fun facts about them. Answers are provided as you go. The activity usually takes less than one hour to complete, but there is no time limit and you may do as much or as little as you like. This is a great activity for families, play dates, friends, or any garden enthusiast seeking to add some challenge to their garden walk. Please be mindful of staying on the paths to protect our plantings! Enjoy!
