Fall Festivities in Everett Children’s Adventure Garden, NY Botanical
This fall surround yourself with the orange, yellow, and red leaves
of the trees in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden and experience
the beauty and excitement of nature in the one-of-a-kind, 12-acre
indoor/outdoor science museum where children can explore, discover
and learn how plants live and function. There are so many things
to do–from ballet dancing to building scarecrows. Participate
in our specially designed inquiry-based programs that stimulate
a child’s enthusiasm for science, ecology and conservation.
ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES
Tuesday, Sundays and Monday holidays: 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Throughout the season, children dissect plant parts such as seeds
and flowers, experiment to find out if plants make sugar to use
as food, investigate bugs that help plants grow, use microscopes
to see plants up close, press flowers and plants to take home,
and much more. We encourage children to explore, examine, inquire
and question just like scientists. A few of the many things children
discover include, what’s in a flower by taking it apart and putting
it back together — and children have an opportunity to look at
things through a bee’s eye view!
Botanists Every Tuesday–Friday, 1:30 - 3:00 p.m.
Join us for activities specially designed for the early learner
(2-5 year olds). Nature crafts featuring recyclables and experiments
abound. Using washed juice boxes, milk cartons, soda bottles,
or egg cartons create an instrument, garden pet, or experiment
to take home. Activities change regularly and are complemented
with a colorful story each week. Drop in!
