Education

07 Feb

The core themes the JBG, an urban nature center in the heart of the city, deals with are botany and the environment. It emphasizes in its educational activities use of all senses and challenges to accentuate visitor experience. The changing seasons create a display which changes each visit: a carpet of fall leaves, blossoming trees, spectacular blooms, ripening fruit and endangered plants are part of the unique setting on offer when visiting the Gardens.
The JBG Education Department offers activities and tours for all ages – pre-school, primary and secondary education as well as for special needs groups. They will also gladly create a tour or construct an activity program to suit the needs and interests of your group.
