A Scavenger Hunt in a Scavenged Garden

As part of a recent birthday celebration at the Botanical Art Garden (Barden), the father of the birthday girl, philosophy professor Alexander Englert, created a whimsical map of the Barden and used it as part of a scavenger hunt for the birthday party. 

It's fun to see the Barden's mix of features represented on a map, some made by nature, others made by people. Scavenging has played a big role in the creation of the Barden, with nearly all materials being of the found variety, rescued from a trip to the landfill.
