The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park is pleased to present “Celebrating Garden Clubs Day” at The Botanic Garden Visitor Center. We will be hosting an Open House on Sunday, July 31st from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. “Celebrating Garden Clubs Day” at the Garden is an opportunity for us to express how grateful we are for the support we receive from garden clubs. The vision, commitment and donations of garden clubs have helped The Botanic Garden come closer to our goal of becoming a year-round sanctuary of environmental preservation, recreation and education.
This event is free and open to the public with a special invitation to all Michigan Garden Club members to join us for the celebration.
Events throughout the day will include Rosie Wagon Tours, Friendly Garden Club of Traverse City Blue Star Memorial Dedication ceremony, Sakura Bonsai Society of Northern Michigan exhibit, the Artist of the Month exhibit featuring photographs Don Rutt and Kristina Lishawa, a Master Gardener exhibit and early signup opportunities for fall classes. Refreshments will be provided throughout the day on the pavilion.
