DESERT BOTANICAL GARDEN ANNOUNCES SUMMER HAPPENINGSAugust 6, 2020
Things are heating up at Desert Botanical Garden, and that doesn’t just include the weather. From evening adventures with the friends and family to early mornings with your dog pack, the Garden’s trails offer a socially-distanced way to get out and experience nature.
The safety of members, guests, staff and volunteers is the Garden’s primary concern. In keeping with CDC guidelines and current measures in the community, the Garden has implemented several precautions, including limited capacity, touchless admissions, a one-way route and required face coverings for all visitors over the age of 6 and staff. Learn more about the Garden’s reopening precautions at dbg.org/reopening.
