Thursdays at Three – Weekly Guided Tours

each Thursday from 3PM to 4PM
this weekly guided tour begins at the MCBG entrance

Come enjoy our rich history and diverse plant life with a trained garden steward who will share the fascinating details of our thriving garden community! Beginning in April, we will be offering weekly one-hour introductory tours of the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. These docent-led walks focused on our many plant collections each Thursday at 3:00PM. Walks are free with regular Gardens admission and just plain free to attend if you are a member of the Gardens

Take a trip around our spectacular collections and our hidden gems. Get to know the garden with a little bit more depth and detail, you will love this place even more when you get to know the plants on a more personal level! The tours will gather and begin from the front entry plaza and meander out to the Dahlia Garden where you will be left to explore your way to the bluffs or head back to the entrance at your own pace.


  • These tours are free with the cost of admission. 
  • Advanced reservations are required for non-members— please purchase your admissions tickets in advance — CLICK HERE. No reservations or tickets required for current MCBG members.
