Native Biodiversity Garden
This garden is one of the first to be set up in Maharashtra to serve as an attempt to conserve nature, attract native species of flora and fauna and be a Learning Resource Centre for students, teachers and parents. Located on the edge of the Teenvira Dam on one acre of land, it is powered by solar energy. Thematic sections to check out include sensory, medicinal, butterfly, wetland or pond ecosystem, grasses, ficus, orchids, ferns, bamboo, palms, spices, kitchen, vertical, adaptation, celebration and a sacred grove. The garden plays host to over 500 native species of plants, some of which are extremely rare with saplings having been procured from across India. Look for the educational design elements through the park as also the for the beautiful ‘wealth from waste’ art sculpture near the 8’ tall Deepmaal.
