May 6th is the third annual National Public Garden’s Day celebration. National Public Gardens Day offers public gardens an excellent opportunity to showcase their gardens and highlight the valuable contributions they make to their communities. It coincides with Mother’s Day Weekend and the start of spring. Botanical gardens, arboretums, public gardens, zoos, specialty gardens and farm gardens will be celebrating. Many of the nation’s public gardens will celebrate the day with special events and activities for educational groups, families and visitors, in an effort to learn about each garden’s commitment to education, research and environmental stewardship. There are many facilities that are even offering free passes. So take your Mom out for the day…dress your American Girl® doll up in something special and enjoy the wonders of spring!
