Our outdoor Children’s Discovery Garden captivates children with a wide variety of nature-based science activities. Children learn to appreciate and understand food, nutrition, ecosystems, and sustainability by exploring our gardens, plant nursery, composts, earthworm farms, and chicken coops. Water Wise features interactive and living water tables to learn about water conservation and pollution prevention, aquaponic gardening, solar energy, and the weather. In Base Camp, children become young archaeologists, paleontologists, and geologists as they learn about people, places, and ecologies of the past.
