As public garden professionals, we see things in nature that others might not, for example, that rattlesnake master seeds look like prehistoric bugs or cranesbill geraniums make little chandeliers in late summer. If you stop a visitor whose eyes can't tell one plant from another and show them these features, those just might be the two plants they will remember. These remarkable things that we notice are the key to repairing the severed connection between the public and nature. Instead of focusing on broad information and facts, it is often the little details that stay with the visitor long after they've left our garden or Facebook page.

Learn about how to take these small details and package these observations to strengthen the connection of visitors to nature.
