Join us for a morning of exploring the plants and creatures that live in our ponds and streams at Myriad Botanical Gardens.

We’ll end the class by creating and sharing colorful drawings of what we discovered outside.

National Public Gardens Day

National Public Gardens Day is a day to honor and draw attention to our nation’s public gardens. The Myriad Gardens joins hundreds of public gardens nationwide to bring national awareness to public gardens and the impact they have on their communities. The Myriad Gardens will offer 2-for-1 admission on this day! This annual tradition of celebrating public gardens historically takes place on the Friday preceding Mother’s Day weekend each year. The intent is to raise awareness of public gardens and the important role they play in their communities and on a global scale.
