“The Botanical Gardens Day” was celebrated three days before Passover. On this day, all around the country, eleven such gardens opened their gates and welcomed everybody to enjoy a day of fun activities.

Many families, adults and young alike, arrived at Tel Aviv University’s Botanical Garden and took part in the various activities: guided tours, challenging riddles, special exhibitions of carnivorous plants and geophytes; and a fascinating display of live insects, presented by their researcher Levona Ler (courtesy of Alex Shlagman, director of the live insect collection at the Natural History Museum).
Visitors to the Gardens all around the country voted with their feet, and we hope to make this day a national spring tradition.
