Facilitated programs for early childhood students

Meet the trees - duration 60 minutes

Trees have common features, but are they all the same? How do these differences help trees to grow and be healthy?

This program is a sensory exploration of some of the trees and plants at the Arboretum, comparing leaves, fruits and seeds. Students will use the senses of touch, sight, smell and hearing as well as explore some of the trees using shape, texture and colour. Students will have an opportunity to listen to a story in the Bonsai display, and imagine living in a miniature world.
