Story Trails

Sundays, October 6 & 20
The cloud forests of Central America are home to dozens of kinds of hummingbirds, who are attracted to many species of red, tubular flowers. You can see the flowers, and some hummingbirds too, on a visit to the Mesoamerican Cloud Forest. Learn more about hummingbirds on your way to the cloud forest as you follow a Story Trail from either entrance – a great way to exercise your family's walking muscles and reading skills at the same time! Be sure to let us know what you think about this new way to experience the garden. If you enjoy it, more Story Trails will appear in the future!
FREE with regular admission
