The Aberdeen Parks and Recreation department was awarded a $20,000 grant from the 3M Foundation to develop the Children’s Garden Area at the Kuhnert Arboretum. As identified in the Confluence-developed Arborteum Master Plan, the Children’s Garden consists of a space filled with natural components organized to encourage structured and unstructured play and learning. More specifically, this nature space will foster an early connection for children with nature and promote future environmental stewardship, provide an opportunity for physical and creative children activities, and support children’s physical, intellectual, and socio-emotional development.
