2017 Monthly Themes
Each month we dig into a different theme for Morning Glories and Fiddleheads, and use the plant collection as a platform for our exploration. For example, in October we investigate artistic concepts by identifying them within our collection. From texture to color, shading and symmetry, our plants exemplify it all! See below for a full list of our monthly themes.
January – Smell • February – Ethnobotany • March – Sound • April – Conservation
May – Planting • June – Insects • July – Flowers • August – Taste & Harvest
September – Native Trees • October – Art • November – Light • December – Celebration
Planning a visit when we don’t have programming? No problem! We have a variety of resources to make your self-guided visit just as fun, including scavenger hunts, digital tours, activities and more!
