Lester P. Bushnell WonderGarden

WonderLab GardenThis outdoor area between the museum building and the B-Line Trail is a natural oasis with flowers, vegetables, herbs, native woodland plants, a water feature, and seating. The garden offers the opportunity to closely observe nature through the seasons, and includes exhibits about solar power and the science of sound. 

Play and Learn Together

What animals do you see in the WonderGarden? What plants attract them?

Experiment to determine what makes it possible to generate enough solar power to make the motor spin.

Close your eyes and use your senses of smell and hearing to experience the flowers, insects and birds in the garden.
