Morton Arboretum Children’s Garden

Morton Arboretum
Lisle, illinois

The purpose of the Morton Arboretum Children’s Garden is to provide a state-of-the-art educational landscape for children. The challenge was to conceive an outdoor environment in which children can gain confidence in their ability to understand the natural world around them and develop a positive approach to outdoor learning. This is achieved by introducing children to many aspects of plant physiology, reproduction, ecology and aesthet¬ics through both self-guided and mediated hands-on experiences.
