    Everett Children's Adventure Garden

    The Everett Children’s Adventure Garden is a 12-acre living classroom designed especially for children. Changing landscapes, a dynamic wetland and pond, and lush plantings provide a unique and vibrant stage for hands-on learning about plant science. The Adventure Garden includes outdoor and indoor learning galleries, each focusing on a different aspect of plant science, filled with interactive exhibits and colorful inquiry-based signs to promote active discovery.

    Outdoor Guided Explorations rotate through several different galleries, as groups learn about their senses, explore plant life cycles, discover the parts of a plant, and investigate plant-animal interactions. The galleries include:
