The Garden hosts a monthly outdoor play day for children ages 2-8 to learn through play. This month's theme is Pirate Adventure with a "plank" to walk, treasure dig, pirate story time, craft, and scavenger hunt. Volunteers will help set-up and clean-up and staff the craft table. Volunteers (and participants over 5) will be required to wear a mask during the entire program. This is a great opportunity for someone who likes working with young kids outdoors.
The purpose of the Cape Fear Botanical Garden is to enrich, inspire and serve the Cape Fear Region as a dynamic center for the collection, culture, and aesthetic display of plants; to encourage the enjoyment of the natural beauty of plants and birds; to promote environmental stewardship; and to provide educational and research resources for the community.
Situated on the bluffs of the Cape Fear River, at the confluence of the Cape Fear River and the Cross Creek River, The Cape Fear Botanical Garden maintains original, old growth forest and plants indigenous to the area. The 85-acre garden is comprised of both formal, cultivated gardens and natural woodland areas intersected with a network of over 3 miles of barrier-free foot-trails with interpretive signs that provide for a scenic and educational exploration of the forest above the river.
The Garden offers educational opportunities, tours, and various seasonal events ranging from the annual fall "Harvest Hoedown" to the summer Symphony concert in the amphitheater.
