Description

Celebrate Public Gardens and learn how our staff and partners promote education, stewardship and plant and water conservation at the ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden!

National Public Gardens Day is for everyone who loves nature.

Special activities, tours, and demonstrations will highlight the role that public gardens play in conservation and environmental stewardship in the community. Visitors also can make crafts and koi kites, visit the "scentsational" garden, and ask horticulture staff their gardening questions.

Community partners will discuss water conservation in landscaping, invasive and native plant species, the benefits of trees, bonsais, bee keeping and more.

About National Public Gardens Day

National Public Gardens Day is presented by the non-profit American Public Gardens Association (APGA) in partnership with Rain Bird.

Both are committed to celebrating the environmental stewardship of North America’s public gardens and their local, regional and national leadership in resourcing the nation’s conservation and environmental education needs.
