Endangered Species Day

Endangered Species Day

Saturday, June 8

The national Endangered Species Day began in 2006 to increase public understanding of recovery efforts for endangered plants and animals. Visit the Garden for a day celebrating rare plants and animals.

Come nose-to-nose with a gopher tortoise, a bald eagle, an indigo snake, a Gila monster and more! Learn about the Garden’s conservation work with rare plants and amphibians. Attend a behind-the-scenes tour lead by a member of the Conservation Department at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
