Our youngest visitors are always welcome to visit the Discovery Corner behind Woody the Talking Tree where they’ll find stories and activities relating to a monthly theme. Our materials are all safe and suitable for kids 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; pre-registration is not required.
Before you leave the Discovery Corner, make sure you say "hi" to Woody the Talking Tree and have the kids crawl through our worm tunnel. Enjoy all of our interactive displays on your way through our three gardens "under glass"! On your way out stop by the gift shop for unique items to remember your visit. Then if you get hungry proceed to the Bagel Station Uptown inside the Botanical Conservatory where you will find a wide range of soups, salads, sandwiches and baked good all waiting to be sampled!
