The Great Botanical Garden Hunt; Sunday 8 November 11am – 2pm
Join the Hawke’s Bay Inkers for a drop-in experience that the whole family can share, on Sunday 8 November 11am – 2pm at the Botanical Gardens in Napier. Each family member will be given a kit that contains a ‘meander map book’ and simple drawing materials. Using the meander map book as a guide you can discover the Botanical Gardens by following the clues at the top of each page, followed by a fun art activity. Explore a wide range of areas within the gardens, make rubbings, have fun with your family and collect natural materials to complete the books. Cost: FREE.
