Learning can’t be confined to the classroom…
In this outdoor learning area, you can find:
- the Cornerstone Financial Credit Union Amphitheater… a perfect space to explore the environment and sustainability while surrounded by the beauty of nature.
- the Rain Garden… a specially-designed garden planted with the help of Cumberland River Compact that contributes to preserving clean rainwater, creating habitat, and preventing local flooding and water pollution.
- the Galactic Gardens Mural… a merging of nature into the Milky Way galaxy designed by local muralists Eastside Murals that serves as a STEAM learning tool to explore native species flowers.
- the Phases of the Moon Engraving… a special engraved diagram that can help you better understand how the Earth-Moon-Sun system works and explore how the Moon appears differently over time.
While Galactic Gardens currently serves as a space primarily for students on field trips, it makes for a wonderful spot to eat lunch on a beautiful day. The Adventure Science Center’s even used it for musical performances and science demonstrations for Science Saturday events! Stay tuned as this space continues to evolve.
