Join us this spring for a guided Rhododendron Walk at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens each Saturday in April and May. More than 1,000 rhododendrons can be seen blooming throughout the Gardens during peak bloom in March, April, and May. Learn more about the Gardens' signature collection, including more than 124 species of rhododendrons and 315 taxa, many of them developed by the region's prolific, enthusiastic, and generous rhododendron growers! 

These walks are free with regular Gardens admission (just plain free to attend if you are a member of the Gardens). If you are not a member of the Gardens, please purchase your admissions tickets online before your visit: GET ADMISSION TICKETS
