Great SpringBreakGarden Adventure & Family Adventure Night

Join us for an interactive Garden Adventure! Families must go online for clues and to find information that will help them as they visit the Garden and complete challenges. Here’s the storyline: Our botanist is on a mission to rescue plants from habitats around the world that are being destroyed. With special permission, Dr. Hunter Greenwood has collected specimens to research, preserve, and showcase in the Garden. He has sent some plants to the Botanical Garden, but enroute the shipment was damaged. Luckily, the plants are all fine, but his notes have been partially destroyed. Now the Garden must plant them, but all of our gardeners are on Spring Break vacation! Can you help Heath and Heather, his twin nephew and niece, figure out in which ecosystem they belong? Then join us a final time for our first Family Adventure Night on Friday, March 19 from 6:30 – 8:30. Fee: $35/family. Free for SABS members. Please register with Sasha Kodet at (210) 207-3270 or
