Day of the trees

“Let the peace of nature enter you as the sun's rays penetrate the branches of the trees. Let the winds blow their freshness into you and let the storms charge you with their energy. Then your worries will fall like autumn leaves."

Carsiana closes for 2020!

The Carsiana Botanical Garden greets you on its last day of opening for 2020, dressed in autumn colors and drops of water. Thanks to all those who have cut out a few hours to come and visit us and to all those who have followed through our photos the changing seasons in Carsiana.

We hope we have given you some serenity in such a difficult year.

3 November: Leaves of art

In autumn, nature offers us a wonderful natural color palette and for the occasion the Carsiana Botanical Garden is transformed into an art studio!

The richness of nature's shapes and colors will inspire participants to express themselves freely, creating original and unique paintings, decorating frames in which to keep their own drawings made on the spot or their photos once they arrive home.

We invite little artists, but also you older ones who still feel like children at heart, to join us on Tuesday 3 November at 2.30pm. All the material necessary for the laboratory will be provided by the staff of the Carsiana Botanical Garden.

25 October: Autumn, colors and shapes

The changing of the seasons is clearly visible in the natural environment. With the arrival of autumn, the colors of the leaves change, the animals undertake their millenary migratory paths, others collect supplies for the upcoming winter and there are also many insects seeking refuge. Thanks to some simple tricks we can help both the plants present in our gardens and the wildlife to survive the winter without difficulty.

We therefore invite you to join us on Sunday 25 October at 11.00. With the naturalist Pierpaolo Merluzzi we will explore the aspects that make autumn not only the season in which nature starts to rest, but also an important moment, during which to carry out activities whose results we can observe during the spring awakening.
