goGardenNow: Botanical Garden Events

Botanical gardens and arboreta play important roles in promoting environmental education, conservation of natural resources, and beautiful green spaces. Be sure to enjoy all they have to offer.  

The Atlanta Botanical Garden this May could unveil a new 1.5-acre addition called Skyline Garden, the company in a press release announced Wednesday. Skyline Garden would not only offer the Garden's "best views" of the city but would also be visible from many of Midtown's green spaces, including neighboring Piedmont Park and the Atlanta Beltline, according to the announcement.

From May to October, San Antonio Botanical Garden highlights the Garden’s winged friends, especially monarch butterflies and hummingbirds. These winged wonders find sustenance for their life cycle here at the Garden, sensitizing all of us to the importance of habitat for those who “co-habit” with us. The Botanical Garden plays a significant role as an Official Monarch Waystation. San Antonio is the only Monarch Butterfly Champion City, taking the National Wildlife Federation Pledge in 2015 to increase pollinator habitat. (TX)
