Events at the Gardens

Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens hosts plant sales, art exhibits, educational workshops, bird-watching walks, botanical lectures, fundraisers, and more. Many of our classes and workshops have limited space. A registration fee is charged for most classes and contributes to furthering our educational programming. Guided walks are generally included in Gardens' admission. See individual listings for more information and check the Ongoing Events page for those activities that repeat on a weekly or monthly basis.
