Join us on a lion hunt as we have our opening day for our Creation Stations! Inspired by George Axtells book “Going on a Lion Hunt” young explorers will create their own safari hats and wander through the garden trails looking for the great lion!

Read along with us during our guided walk filled with hands-on learning activities and crafts as we read the story. Explore the garden and take part in our creation stations and see our new life sized topiary animals!

Creation stations will be set up at various parts of the Garden, where guests of all ages can come and create some of their own art out of our nature here at the Garden. From constructing your own mandala to leaf sketching, embrace your inner wild side this year as a part of CBG's Art of Nature: Walk on the Wild Side.

​Cost: $5 member / $7 nonmember, 1 free caretaker entry

Timeslots every 30 minutes, 15 people per time slot

Wild things live amidst the plants here at the Columbus Botanical Garden. Twelve larger than life animal topiaries will be roaring and soaring among us from May to October! Beautiful arrays of moss, flowers, and foliage all combine to create these magnificent creatures. Explore our various gardens to visit all our animals across CBG.

Art of Nature: Walk on the Wild Side is CBG's 25th Anniversary Art Installation! Our animal topiaries will be here to celebrate the Garden's Birthday, and we would love to have you throughout the time they're here. We will have several events based around these beautiful topiaries as a way to cherish their time here in the Garden. Thank you to VisitColumbus and TSYS for sponsoring these toparies and making this event possible.
