March 4 – 5: Join us for the Fuqua Conservatory’s long-awaited return of the tropical frog exhibits! Get ready for a weekend of fun and learning as we welcome the frogs back home to the Garden. This event is free with Garden admission.

  • Join Garden staff for a frog feeding to see how our amphibians catch and consume their food!
  • Learn about the reptilian residents with a Conservatory animal tour.
  • Pick the brains of our amphibian expert at the Meet the Expert Q&A.
  • See how your frog-keeping skills hold up in interacting with bugs and terrarium components to learn about the difficulties of frog care.
  • Hop along Lilypad Lane on the Great Lawn, giving your best ribbit imitation along the way!
  • Sensory bins full of blue pom pons hidden toy frogs to encourage sensory play.
  • A frog call machine lets kids push buttons and hear native calls, paired with frog-shaped sound toys to make different noises and talk about how to listen for frogs in the Conservatory. 
  • Stuffed animals, x-rays and other props to teach how amphibians endure metamorphosis.
  • Reading Invitation  –  A blanket with frog-themed books will invite parents and their little ones to sit and rest flipping through picture books.

Please note: Outdoor activities will not be available on March 5 due to Vanilla Sunday.
