Wednesday Walkabouts

Get outside and discover Jenkins with us! Our 2021 Wednesday Walkabouts are back in-person starting July 7. Join us weekly (July 7 – November 17) from 1:00 – 2:00 pm to celebrate the change of seasons. Jenkins’ staff will lead you on in-person tours through the garden featuring our robust botanical collections. Each week will have a different focus, depending on the seasonal landscape and the staff leader. Topics could include summer wildflowers, pollinators, fruit and berries, fall foliage, or native trees and shrubs.

Wednesday Walkabouts are free of charge but registration is required.
