On Friday, 3.2.2017, Campus Teva invited the general public to celebrate World Wetlands Day. The program included a guided tour of the Botanical Garden, focusing on wetlands. During the tour the visitors collected water samples from various ponds in the Garden. At the end of the tour they gathered in the open-air classroom, where they were invited to examine through a magnifying glass the water samples they had collected and discover the tiny creatures that live in the water.  An amphibian exhibition was also on display in the classroom, which included an Eastern spadefoot toad, Spanish newt, green toad, and Levant water frog – tadpoles and adult frogs. The visiting children enjoyed a craft workshop, in which they prepared an origami frog, which turns from tadpole to adult and back.
