Attraction

Curiosity and sensuality abound at
the Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
Located just past North Campus on
Dixboro Road, the gardens include a
conservatory which houses
approximately 2,000 different plant
species and 4.2 miles of trails.
Exploring the Tropical House of the
conservatory, alumni John and
Kathie Gourlay, examine a tree
which holds rainwater in its leaves
(top). Peering into a larger ivater
receptacle, eight-year-old Jacinda
Gant (bottom left) finds plants, as
well as her own reflection staring
back at her. In the Warm Temperate
House there are plants from the
subtropical, warm temperate and
Mediterranean climates (center and
middle right). Also in this room,
three-year-old Renee Lalinsky
(bottom right) claps her hands at the
gigantic goldfish swimming in the
pool. The Arid House contains
various succulent plants including a
variety of unusually shaped cacti
(middle left). The Botanical
Gardens is a unique resource for
students and the Ann Arbor
community.
