This summer, 2022, the Jardin des Plantes (the Botanical Garden) in Paris is hosting many outdoor activities for people to discover the biodiversity of the Garden and reconnect with nature.
With the new ‘Les Rendez-Vous Nature’ (‘Nature Appointments’) event, there will be daily entertainment and activities from June to the end of August in a unique natural setting in the heart of Paris. The Botanical Garden’s scientific animators, gardeners, caretakers, researchers, and artists invite people of all ages to discover the riches of this historic garden: its plant and animal species, and its unusual corners that blend art and science.
There will be guided tours in the Garden and activities for children, such as land-art, storytelling, treasure hunts, and ‘Books in the Garden’ animations. In August, there will be a dedicated program to celebrate bats.
On the weekend of 23-24 July 2022, the Garden is hosting a nature, music, and poetry workshop, called ‘Pars les soirs bleus d’été’ (‘On Blue Summer Evenings’) to create natural perfume, introduce people to naturalist sounds, and encourage ‘sensitive’ walks in the Ecological Garden.
