Monthly Photo Walks

Photo walk participants meet at the Alsdorf Auditorium at 9 a.m. for a brief talk, and then tour the Garden photographing what's in bloom.

Free photo walks are run in conjunction with our ongoing Digital Photo Contest series. Click here to see past Garden photo walk participant photos on SmugMug, or submit your photos to the current contest online at
