Holden Forests & Gardens welcomes new adventure, 'Mission Botanica,' to start summer season

The 'amazing' adventure is open now through September 5 at the Holden Arboretum.

KIRTLAND, Ohio — If you're ready to climb, leap, hang, fly and learn, then a popular Northeast Ohio destination has just the thing for you. 

Holden Forests and Gardens is kicking off its summer season with an 'amazing' new attraction. Mission Botanica is now open at the Holden Arboretum in Kirtland. 

The interactive maze is described as way to " explore the vast biodiversity in a bilingual, family-friendly adventure maze, that will feature highlighted plants and trees from the arboretum’s collection," according to the Forest & Gardens' website.

Inside the maze, guests will answer a series of questions that dictate their path through the winding maze. The question helps guests to understand and learn more about how plants and animals work together to support one another.

"Interwoven in the stories shared within the maze is the urgent message that biodiversity is shrinking, and many plant species are disappearing before we’ve had a chance to find and learn about their unique roles in their ecosystems," said the website for the more than 3,03,000-acre forest and garden. 

The exhibit opened on June 11 and will remain open until Sept. 5. 

Mission Botanica admission is included in the general admission price. Tickets start at $16 for non-members and $12 for members.

The Holden Arboretum is located at 9550 Sperry Rd in Kirtland. For more information on Holden Forests and Gardens and its summer-long programming, click here
