Interpretive Display Area
Green Bay Botanical Garden had one goal in mind when designing the educational horticulture displays and exhibits: to create a space for our visitors to increase their environmental literacy through informal interpretive opportunities. Thanks to grants from the Wisconsin Environmental Education Board and Green Bay Community Foundation, as well as donations from the Estate of Roger Simurdiak, John Kress, and Brown County Beekeepers Association, the Garden has developed several vibrant, interactive displays for the Horticultural Resource Center. The displays focus on topics relevant to the Garden, such as bees, butterflies, birds, beneficial and pest insects, the right plant for the right place and winter plant adaptations.
This space is a perfect spot for a break during your visit. Adults and children alike will enjoy the interactive elements of these exhibits:
- Insect specimen samples
- Butterfly life cycle puzzle
- Design an insect activity
- Bee keeper dress up clothes
- Microscopes with specimen slides
- Take home information and activities
Next time you visit the Garden be sure to make a stop in the Horticultural Resource Center, located on our lower level, to explore and hopefully learn something new!
