River of Grass

The River of Grass, an immersive indoor and outdoor exhibit space, will focus on the needs and interests of young children (ages 3 – 6) and their adult companions. While the content will revolve around the ecology and hydrology of the Everglades, this exhibit will be a place that feels magical, engaging and memorable for kids based on activities that are geared specifically toward their learning skills and developmental profile. At the same time, it will offer foundational science and environmental science content drawing on examples from the Everglades – its plants, animals, habitats, the essential role of water and the relationships resulting from their complex interactions. Science content geared toward adults will be available so that they are both better able to support their children’s learning and satisfy their own desire for content engagement.
