ADMISSION COST IS $9 (no pennies)

We will explore the 87 acres of gardens at a relaxed pace so we get absolutely no exercise. Mileage is possibly around 2. Elevation gain: maybe 100 feet

You can stay with me or explore on your own. I can identify and explain some stuff about the natural values of the plants in the native garden. In the rest of the gardens, which are for plants from all around the world, I will make up stuff about their ecological importance.

BRING LUNCH, WATER, HAT, CLOTHES, SHOES, yadda yadda
