Welcome to the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks during Butterfly season! I'm so excited you came out to experience the garden and listen to my audio tour! I wish I could be with you in person and show you around, but this is a great alternative. As you walk through the garden you can play the next stop by clicking the next button and then the play symbol. Or you can choose any stop on the list by clicking the listen button. You can pause, go back a repeat, or adjust my volume anytime. If for some reason you get booted off, just load me back up.
While you are here today, will you do me a favor? Will you follow these three rules?
First, stay on the path. If you trample the mulch, you might damage the plants or creatures who live here.
Second, please respect all living things in this garden. Of course, respect your teacher or parents and classmates or siblings, but also respect the animals and plants. Even the bees, spiders, and scary looking bugs need respect because they all play an important role here.
Finally, leave no trace. Do not pick any flowers or put any rocks in your pocket. Also, do not leave any trash behind.
Now, let's go start exploring!
