April is National Poetry Month. Green Spring Gardens invites you on a poetry scavenger hunt.
Explore the beautiful spring gardens in search of nine nature-themed poems. There are hidden images throughout the gardens that represent natural objects highlighted in the poems. To begin, take a picture of, or print, the “Poem Checklist” to guide you on your hunt and to track your finds. As you search for the poems and images, please stay on designated footpaths, and do not walk into garden beds in order to protect emerging spring plants and blooms. After completing the scavenger hunt, share a photo of yourself, your family, your favorite poem, or your favorite natural object on Facebook or Instagram and tag #GreenSpringGardens. Happy hunting!
