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!

       

A botanical garden is a living and ongoing project that need much care. The plants need time to get settled and develop. This year we see that many of our plants have survived both freezing and flooding and we are proud of presenting a great variety of plants in our garden.

In the geological park we have 26 rocks from the region, next to these we now have new information signs that explains what you see in the rock, how old they are and how they have been created. In addition, we have set up new informative posters that shows how the crusts on earth have been in motion and thereby made mountain chains. These chains have later been eroded and the deposited material makes the base of some of the rocks in the park.

New this season in the botanical garden are signs for all our plants in addition to new informative signs that can give an increased knowledge about plants in the wild, which can be useful to have when enjoying outdoor life. The botanical garden is categorized according to where you can find the plants in nature. Our categories are bog plants, forest plants, meadow plants and alpine plants. You can learn about how the different plants adapts and what are typical for the plants in the different zones. You may also learn about how the plants were used before and some challenges of present time.
