The Secret Garden – Discover nature on a nature spotting expedition–  you will start your journey with a lucky nature dip of clues, armed with bug and plant identification kits, to find your way around the garden to solve a Nature mystery.  You will have 60 minutes to search for hidden natural objects dotted around the garden. At the end of the hunt, there will be a reward for whoever finds the strangest garden treasures!
