Twilight Tour in the Gardens
Join us for an after-hours tour of exploration and discovery that takes place within Allerton and/or McBryde Gardens. Guided by the moonlight each tour is unique and the path will be dependent upon the season, weather, and Mother Nature in her most secretive time, twilight. Feel the gardens come alive in a whole new perspective. Evening pollinators, night bloomers, and nocturnal creatures bring the garden alive in this time of slumber for most. Aromas, sounds, and more are waiting for your discovery.
This tour is limited in availability and size; dates are dependent upon the lunar phase. The tour is approximately 2 ½ hours long with up to 2 hours of walking on light trails; appropriate attire and shoes are required, no slip-ons or heels. Flashlight provided.
