Explore with us as we step Into the Garden, a virtual event series hosted by Scientist in Every Florida School and Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County. Scientists will uncover many mysteries in the garden through these virtual interactive trips, which will be live-streamed on Zoom and YouTube.
An ode to artist Sean Kenney’s Nature Pop® exhibit currently on display at Mounts Botanical Gardens, we examine organisms who are engineers. What is an ecosystem engineer? Learn how keystone species play a critical role in their environment by altering the landscape and creating microenvironments for other organisms. At the same time, see how nature inspires through art while taking a tour of several LEGO engieered sculptures made of more than 800,000 LEGO® pieces.
