A face lift for our garden

Lately we have worked on an upgrade of our outdoor exhibitions; the geological park and the botanical garden. In the geological park we have renewed the information for each of our 26 rocks from the region and in addition we have new and informative posters on the fascinating geological history through many million years. The botanical garden is new from 2018, and with 200 different plants there is much to see!
