We’re staying open late every Tuesday, Sept. 5 – Oct. 24, to make more hours for wildflowers! Make it a date night, a picnic with friends, or come for some solo solace in nature. Each evening will feature live music from local musicians, a rolling lineup of Austin’s favorite food trucks, and take-and-walk adult beverages for purchase. 

Tuesday Twilights is included with regular garden admission. Reservations are encouraged and become available seven days in advance.

Evening Walk & Talk: Ruff Plants for Dog Owners

This educational opportunity will take place from 6:30 – 7:30 PM, beginning in front of the Woodland Garden (#9 on our map).

Your dog and your garden may not have always coexisted harmoniously, but we can help! Whether you’re converting to native turf or groundcover, adding more trees, shrubs and flowers to your yard, you can find practical, attractive native plants that can stand up to paws and zoomies.

Join horticulturist Amy Galloway on this one-hour walk through the gardens, as she gives pointers for native plants and gardening successfully with pets. You’ll also learn about plants to avoid and get tips tending to plants damaged by pets.

This class is free with admission. Entry to the gardens is always free for Members! Learn more about membership here.

This is an adults only class. Well behaved dogs welcome.
