March 20: Cherry Trees


Sponsored by Japanese Traders and Manufacturers Association. Celebrate spring among the Sakura (cherry blossoms) in our Japanese Garden. Enjoy a relaxing picnic lunch from Asian-inspired food trucks while you learn the history and symbolism of our Japanese Garden with a self-guided tour of Seijaku-en (Japanese Garden of Tranquility). 

March 27: Spring Ephemerals

Discover native wildflowers such as Trillium, bellwort, Virginia bluebells, and celandine poppies as they make their brief annual appearance in our Wildflower Woodlands.
