Celebrate fall in the collection of leaves from all around the world!
Find the giant “umbrella” leaf of the Gunnera plant, compare it with the tiny leaf of the world's smallest flowering plant, be wowed by a tree with three different types of leaves on one plant, including “ghost”, “mitten” and “egg” shapes, and see a leaf that actually moves when you touch it. During the mini-tour, talk about why some leaves change color and why some leaves are smelly.
After the walk, return to the classroom and make leaf decorations for your homes, including beautiful leaf weavings from nature.
Children must be accompanied by a paid registered adult. Buy tickets online.
