Join us as we celebrate the Garden on this special day. To celebrate its 80th anniversary, the Garden will offer $8 admission and host a celebration for the community. Festivities will include cake for all, hands-on activities, geocaching activity and much more! For eight decades, the Garden has been preserving desert plants because of the passion and promise made to future generations by Gertrude Webster and Gustaf Stark. Since then, the Garden welcomes nearly half a million visitors each year from around the world.
Due to availability, the agave roast has been canceled. Please stay tuned for more information about a new date and time.
