Supplement your life science, botanical and environmental studies curriculum with a visit to the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Walk through the Fuqua Conservatory to discover a lush tropical rainforest, make observations on unique orchids and marvel at bizarre succulents from South Africa and Madagascar. Tip-toe through the treetops on the Kendeda Canopy Walk and visit the Edible Garden to learn more about the plants we eat. Don’t miss Origami in the Garden, the largest-ever exhibition of massive origami-inspired sculptures by Jennifer and Kevin Box. Grade specific, self-guided materials will be available in the Visitor Center and drop-in tours of the Fuqua Conservatory will be available to a limited number of attendees on a first come first serve basis.
