Children's Garden
Education is a priority at Lauritzen Gardens. No other garden better illustrates our educational focus than the children's garden. It is the site of many of our children's activities including school tours, youth organization projects, and garden children’s programs.

Children have the opportunity to engage in hands-on gardening as well as receive a formal tour and presentation by education staff. Children are involved in the planning, planting, maintaining and harvesting of this garden area.

Adults enjoy visiting the garden as well to see bright colors, unique artwork and unusual plants not found elsewhere at Lauritzen Gardens. For information on scheduling a visit for your children's group, call Kate Schwarz, garden educator, at (402) 346-4002 ext. 253.

Ronald Weise, a welder from Dunlap, Iowa, created our friendly dinosaur, “Dina,” using scrap metal and old farm equipment parts. Dina has an oil-pan head and antique hay rake tine ribs.
