Upcoming Events:

March 12 – All About Butterflies
Get ready for National Learn About Butterflies Day! Flutter by on this day to learn something new about butterflies and appreciate their beauty. Butterflies need our help to survive as they rely on native flowers and natural resources. Help your local butterflies by planting native.

April 9 – Reduce, Recuse & Recycle!
Earth day will be here before you know it so join us in the gardens to learn about how you can help protect our earth by reducing, reusing and recycling! Learn how to correctly recycle plastics, what those symbols really mean on the bottom of containers and how long our waste is actually sitting in that landfill.

April 16 – Memory Rocks with Armando Cortes, St. Elmo Arts Fellow
Fossils are a form of memory. They can be a record providing a snap shot of past animals and plants that lived long before us. Similarly, we can leave our own record of memory imprinted amongst rocks. In this drop-in program, join this year’s St. Elmo Arts Fellow, Armando Cortes, to create your own fossil-like record with colorful air-dry clay and preserve a memory of your visit to the Wildflower Center for years to come!

May 7 – Water Conservation
Did you know that a family of four in the United States uses 400 gallons of water in a single day? That’s just about ten bath tubs worth of water each day! Join us this weekend in learning about ways that you can limit your water usage and view a demonstration of how rainwater harvesting works.

These drop-in programs will take place in person at the Wildflower Center. Face masks are optional while attending. Please review our safety guidelines before your visit.

This program is free with regular garden admission (and does not require separate registration). Presently, admission is open by reservation. Reservations can be made up to seven days in advance. Admission is always free for members!
