What are you planning for the BGANZ Open Day 2017? Share your ideas and thoughts in the comments – it would be great to hear about your programmes. We’ve got a line-up of scheduled activities as well as some self-guided trails that we are highlighting. The Department of Conservation (DOC) will also be joining us.

There is always something new and exciting to do at the Australian National Botanic Gardens. Our afterDARK programs are great fun for the whole family and over the Spring season many visitors enjoyed our Scavenger Hunts. Families gathered for a night-time botanical scavenger hunt and by following clues they discovered treasures and treats while learning about our fantastic plant, animal and insect life.
We have a summer of fun and exciting activities planned for our visitors including Sunset Cinema, the annual Summer Sounds Concert Series and Luminous Botanicus III. Join us and enjoy one of the many great events on offer this summer. For more details check out the What’s On at http://www.parksaustralia.gov.au/botanic-gardens/do/whats-on.html
We survey all of our visitors at every event we run, from guided walks to workshops, displays and school holiday programmes. We then use this information to change the way we do things at future events, or to keep doing things our visitors are loving! We luckily have a lovely volunteer who does all of our data entry for us. Continue reading “Why we love surveys”
