In the Everett Children's Adventure Garden, adventure abounds for kids of all ages with art and science activities such as mixing paints and creating science notebooks. Kids will discover their inner scientists and ask questions about the world. Each child will practice problem-solving skills before setting off on an adventure to find medicinal plants. In the tradition of the Renaissance, students will also use an album amicorum, or "book of memories," to record any plant observations or descriptions that they make during their visit.
