Desert Botanical Garden!

There was a Groupon for 50% off admission but you missed it.  So if you are not a member admission is $18 and for non-members admission to butterflies is $3.50.

We will enter the garden around 9:30am because free docent led tours are offered starting at 10am.

After the tour we will explore other areas of the garden on our own, then if interested we can go to a local restaurant for lunch.  There are a few places nearby, including the garden's own (but very expensive) Gertrude's restaurant.

Please either bring 1 liter of water or plan to buy bottled water at the Desert Botanical Garden.  They have water machines at several places around the garden, sell water near the main entrance, and have water fountains.  Remember the sunscreen and your camera!

The estimated end time includes lunch.  If you don't plan to do lunch expect 3 hours.

    Sorry for the last minute change everyone. I was planning on attending until about 10:30, since I have a prior commitment at 11 am sharp, but I won't get a chance to get through the tours and might as well wait until next week. I'l

    If what they told me is true, we can also get two people in free on Saturday with our two memberships.

    Since a free day was just posted by another organizer I want you to know the free day does not include an official garden tour or butterflies. Butterflies closes at 5pm and official tours are only in the morning.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
