Conservation Garden: Exciting New Exhibit Coming Soon!

Are you ready to hear the latest and greatest news from the Children’s Museum at La Habra? The end of August and the month of September bring exciting new developments in our Science Station Gallery! Construction will soon be underway on our Conservation Garden!

During our closure for renovation, from August 31st to September 28th, this long-anticipated exhibit will take the place of the Clear Water Mountain exhibit in our Science Station Gallery. Conservation Garden will feature four elements: an interactive vegetable garden and orchard where kids will learn about sustainable gardening; a compost unit where green waste is recycled into mulch for the garden; an irrigation element, where conservative methods are used for watering; and a section on drought tolerant and water friendly plants.

This will be the final step in our Clubhouse H2O renovation. The whole exhibit focuses on engaging children in a fun way, so that they might understand more about our wonderful (but dry) state of California and how we can all do our part to conserve precious water. This renovation began with Clubhouse H20, as phase 1 saw the upgrade of our shower, sink, and toilet with blue lights and interactive sounds. The addition of the Conservation Garden will provide a totally immersive experience to complete this gallery.

So please, pardon our dust, because great new things are on the way! Check back for photos and updates and stop by in the fall to experience this exciting new exhibit for yourself!
