And God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plant yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” (Genesis 1:11, ESV)
God created a wide variety of plants to produce after their kind. Explore Botany at the Ark will investigate the beauty and design of the plant kingdom through a behind-the-scenes experience with the horticulture staff at the Ark Encounter green houses.
