Rainforest Adventure with Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

- 1 minute read.

**Please note this event is for schools only**

Join the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh for a fun, interactive session exploring the tropical rainforest. You’ll discover some of our favourite rainforest plants – and their adaptations to their environments – and explore why these plants and ecosystems are so important to us and the planet. Join us to discover how climate change is affecting the rainforests and what actions we can all take to become rainforest protectors! This is an exciting chance to get a virtual ‘behind the scenes’ look at our glasshouses while they are closed for the refurbishment as part of the Edinburgh Biomes project!
