The Botanical Gardens have been suggested by a number of members and there is an upcoming gallery closing reception and book signing by Iowa photographer Mark Hirsch, so I thought this would be a great opportunity for anyone that can make it to support a local artist.
The gardens are only open until 5:00 and the reception is from 5:00-7:00. I know the 4:00 time is early but I plan on exploring with my camera for a bit before the reception for anyone that would like to join in. Admission to the Botanical Gardens is $5, but there is no cost to attend the reception however they do ask for an RSVP. My assumption is that it will be held in one of their meeting rooms and the rest of the center will not be available.
