Celebrate Mom this Mother’s Day Weekend with a visit to your local public garden!

Santa Fe Botanical Garden is proud to join the American Public Gardens Association and 590+ Public Gardens Nationwide In Celebrating an Annual Day of Awareness that Honors the Role Public Gardens Play in Promoting Plant and Water Conservation, Education and Environmental Leadership.

What is National Public Gardens Day?


In celebration of botanical gardens, arboreta, conservatories, educational gardens and historical landscapes, many of the American Public Gardens Associations’s 590+ member institutions will mark the day with special events and activities for schools, families and thousands of visitors.

Many of the activities will continue through Mother’s Day weekend, offering you time to enjoy the beauty of the gardens while learning about each garden’s commitment to education, research and environmental stewardship.

Outstanding public gardens exist across North America and beyond. To find gardens in your area, go to the National Public Gardens Day website and search for them by either garden name or geographic location.
