Meet at Visitor Center Fountain, free. Our Nature Ramblers learn about the natural areas, flora and fauna of the garden while making new friends and enjoying the cool, fresh air. Sessions start with an inspirational reading by a nature writer such as Annie Dillard, John Muir, or Janisse Ray. This is a ramble, not a hike; we will stop to view interesting plants, insects, butterflies, mushrooms, etc., along the way. These informal rambles are free, but donations are accepted in the garden’s donation box in the lobby of the Visitor’s Center.
