Date(s) & Time(s)::
Daily from January 12, 2013 until April 7, 2013
Location: Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun
Mighty Jungle Adventure exhibit
January 12 – April 7
You are lost deep in the heart of the jungle. What will you eat? What will you drink? How will you survive? In the midst of a beautiful garden of flowers and lush tropical plants, parents will enjoy watching their preschoolers and other children explore the Conservatory’s jungle treehouse and playground structures for a morning or afternoon of pretend play. Little ones can “fish,” find water, locate “fruit” and build a rustic shelter of branches and leaves in our tame version of Jungle Survivor. Stop in at the Bagel Station for a snack and drink while you’re here! For more information, call (260) 427-6440.
Discovery Corner: Jungle Animals
Daily in the Discovery Gallery
Our youngest visitors are always welcome to visit the Discovery Corner behind Woody the Talking Tree where they’ll find stories and activities. This month’s theme is Jungle Animals, tying in with the Showcase exhibit, “Mighty Jungle Adventure.” Our materials are suitable for kids in pre-K through 1st grade. Adults are encouraged to read aloud to their young learners and explore ideas together. The Discovery Corner is free with general admission; no pre-registration required.
Jungle Adventure Day
Saturday, February 9, 10:00 am–3:00 pm
Heed the call of the jungle and come to the Conservatory for an adventure! Play in the jungle tree house and visit with some smaller jungle creatures. Get your face painted to look like an animal. Bring your tribe and make matching necklaces. Oh, no! Those mischievous monkeys came through camp and stole all of our fruit. This made the frogs hoppin’ mad and now they are hiding from everyone! We’ll need your help to find more fruit and get the frogs back to camp. There will be popcorn and punch for you to enjoy, too. Come and join us in the jungle. It’ll be an adventure! Regular Conservatory admission fees apply: $5/adult, $3/child ages 3-17. No reservations required. Sponsored by 101.7 WLDE and WAJI Majic 95.1 FM.
