Saturday Docent Tours Are Back!
March 2 - May 25 2013
Looking for something relaxing and fun to do on Saturday mornings? Do you want to show off one of the best attractions in the area to friends and family when they visit? Garvan Woodland Gardens now has the perfect way to do either. Beginning again on March 2, every Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m., specially trained volunteer docents will be leading groups through the Gardens’ most beautiful landscapes, bringing attention each week to areas that are at peak for your visit.
Learn about the history of the Gardens and Lake Hamilton, interesting plants you can grow at home, and about the wonderful woodlands that grace our state. Come often and you’ll see the progression of the seasons as you’ve never seen it before. Or, as an added bonus, get some exercise in one of the best places around for walking. You might even make some great new friends.
No reservation is required and there is no extra charge for Saturday Strolls for a limited time. Tours on a first-come, first-served basis are open to the public. Children able to walk for an hour or so are welcome. As always, Members enter the Gardens free. Beginning September 1, the regular admission rates for non-members will be: adults $10, seniors $9, children $5 ages 6-12, and free for 5 and under. Groups will be limited to 20, so come early and don’t miss out.
