All the dirt on the Toledo Zoo Garden Tour Series

Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in Our Community

It has been said that gardeners know all the dirt, so here are all the details about your Zoo’s Garden Tour Series. This series brings people and plants together by taking guests through the Zoo’s beautiful gardens and grounds to better understand how our plants grow, bloom, and change throughout the seasons.

Each tour is guided by a Zoo horticulture staff member who will discuss different gardening topics, including growing tips, best management practices, and much more. Whether you are a seasoned green thumb or gardening greenhorn, there will be something to learn and apply to at-home gardening projects.

Tours meet in front of Ziems Conservatory 15 minutes prior to start time, last approximately 90 minutes, and happen rain or shine. Guests are encouraged to dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes, as tours may encompass the entire Zoo. Cost is $10 for Toledo Zoo members and $15 for non-members, per person/tour. Space is limited and reservations are required.
