KTMB’s Sensory Garden at Idlewild Park, in Reno, is a place for adults and children alike to explore their senses! Open to the public, the once-vacant plot of land has been transformed into an interactive garden by KTMB-led efforts. There are five garden beds (each dedicated to a sense), live willow tunnels, a human sun dial, and other interesting features. Go to the garden when it is in bloom and ignite your senses!
KTMB also has a Sensory Garden field trip program, designed for grades K-3, that will inspire students to discover their excitement for nature through hands-on activities while exploring their five senses in a garden setting. Each lesson is aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Nevada Academic Content Standards. Contact us to learn more or request a field trip.
