Halloween Treasure Hunt @Botanical Garden
Join this Green Steps community gathering:
spend an amusing day with your family and friends,
strenghten the bond between parents and children with a playful quest in the most colorful celebration of the year.
Halloween is coming; are you ready?
As most people know, Halloween comes on October 31st, but 2020 might carry an extra special surprise.
Green Steps will turn the Botanical Garden into a playground for our Eco Treasure Hunt:
while looking for clues, participants will have to use their knowledge about the local environment to proceed to the next step, and will end up learning more until the end of their "Nature Quest" to gain the final reward.
Participants will be arranged in groups, and parents will cooperate with their kids: teamwork is crucial for the activity to go by, and for the teams to find the Treasure.
Above all, we believe that learning should be FUN!
Join the community event to have a direct taste of how Green Steps activities are, and grab the chance to dress up in your Halloween costumes in an outdoor activity, exercising body and mind.
The Botanical Garden is a green oasis in the city.
This park is also the perfect outdoor classroom to organize nature discovery activities.
What makes this location attractive is the possibility to explore and interact directly with Nature. It is, without a doubt, one of the best spaces for recreation and outdoor environmental education within Shanghai downtown.
A healthy environment is a foundation for a stable and productive society and to ensure the well-being of present and future generations, we all must participate to protect, conserve, and sustainably manage our natural resources.
