It's also an excellent choice for school, day care, church, civic, elder-care and other group field trips. Explore the importance of plants in our lives, learning is encouraged through the power of the senses and guided activities.

The original Fieldstone Building Cupola, a replica of the hot air balloon "Bob's Cat", and a Pottawatomie Medicine Wheel are just a few cool things here that are used in teaching about local and Michigan history.
