May 6th is National Public Gardens Day

By 2ndgreenrevolution @2ndgreenrev

May 6th is National Public Gardens DayYet another “National Day” has come across our radar here at 2nd Green Revolution. Following up on yesterday’s post about National Train Day (May 7th, the day after National Public Gardens Day), here comes another example of a cause or event getting a day of recognition. National Public Gardens Day falls on the Friday before Mother’s Day. According to the website, “National Public Gardens Day is an annual celebration of the nation’s public gardens to raise awareness of the important role botanical gardens and arboreta play in promoting environmental stewardship, plant and water conservation, green spaces, and education in communities nationwide.”

Search for an event or garden near you to see if they are participating and what they are doing to celebrate National Public Gardens Day. In addition, several gardens are providing free admission to their facilities. Click here to see if there is a garden near you offering free admission on May 6th.
