  • Rearrange the boulders and rake the “sand” in the Zen-style garden.
  • Create your own insect hunt.
  • Add wildlife and flower magnets to the trees.
  • Try on a kimono hanging at the back of the teahouse.
  • Use the large, foam pieces to create your own sculpture.
  • Discover hidden information throughout the exhibition.
  • Participate in changing discovery cart activities.
