National Public Gardens Day at the Gardens, FREE ADMISSION TO ALL!

Join us Friday, May 7 at the Gardens to honor our nation’s gardens and the people that support them. Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is providing free admission for all visitors and will be honoring special supporters.

National Public Gardens Day is a national day of awareness to learn about the important role their public gardens play in promoting environmental stewardship and awareness, plant and water conservation, and education.

In honor of all of our nation’s gardens and the people that support them, Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens is providing free admission for all visitors.

Additionally, the Gardens will honor two very special people and one extraordinary organization who have given so much to support Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. “I am pleased to announce that Betty Paddock, Mae Lauer, and the Friends of the Gardens will be recognized that day for their many contributions over the years,” said Ry Southard, MCBG’s Executive Director.

Betty Paddock’s ceremony will be at 2:30 p.m. in the Succulent Garden. Mae Lauer’s ceremony will be at 3:00 p.m. at the Mae Lauer Display House. The Friends of the Gardens will be honored at 3:45 p.m. on the Gardens’ Plaza.
