What better way than sports to teach kids about nature?
That’s the bet the Baltimore Orioles are making with a new garden at Camden Yards. The baseball team partnered up with the Maryland Stadium Authority, National Wildlife Federation and National Aquarlum to open Oriole Garden. It’s located behind right field.
According to the O’s, it has 12,000 plants in 26 different species. But the real wow factor is expected to be the fauna. Gardeners are looking to attract the Baltimore Oriole. It’s fitting not only because of the home team’s namesake, but also from a conservation standpoint. Scientists have warned that their population is dwindling. So good on the O’s for making sure long fly balls aren’t the only things soaring at Birdland.
