Most public gardens are hosts to children every day. Whether they are visiting with family or with a school group, gardens are magical places for children to learn, explore, and enjoy. In some cases, that exploration can lead to a child being separated from their family or group. The unnerving panic that ensues upon discovery of a missing child requires garden staff to step up and assist with an effective response plan to reunite the parties. Or, in a worst case scenario, prevent abduction or injury to the child.
