Retro Sunday – Community Appreciation Day

Flash back to the early 1960s and the origins of Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens with $1 admission for everyone on Sunday, August 20, from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Retro Sunday is Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens day of giving back to the community that has supported us for more than 55 years!

For those who have not visited in a while, come see what’s new and blooming this summer. Tour the expanded organic demonstration Vegetable Garden. Delight in rhododendrons, roses, coastal wildflowers, and so much more. Introduce a friend to the Gardens and spend the day wandering the 47 acres of botanical bliss. Find inspiration for your home garden, have a family picnic, walk the dog, or find a quiet spot to melt the day away... just a few ideas to get you started.

Well-behaved dogs on 6ft. non-retractable leash welcome. Please clean up after your dog and dispose of the baggie in a trash receptacle. Be mindful that not everyone loves dogs.

Please, no smoking anywhere in the Gardens. Thank you.
