Matthaei Botanical Gardens unveils children’s garden on Sunday

Make the most of your end-of-summer weekends and join in the fun this Sunday at the Gaffield Children’s Garden at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens. From 1 to 4 p.m., celebrate the official grand opening of this unique space for fun, learning and discovery that allows kids the opportunity to connect with nature in a playful way.

The garden features dozens of "special" spaces including a “sense-ational garden”; a natural builders garden; a habitat garden for exploring and imagining the homes of wild animals; a butterfly garden for attracting and encouraging butterflies; secret spaces for children to find and create their own places in the garden; and much more.

The grand opening celebration will also include three children's theater performances, and music and activities throughout the afternoon! Free to all with no registration required. For more information, call 734-647-7600 or visit the event web site.
