Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the National Botanic Garden!

The Garden will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day but will re-open on Boxing Day, and it’ll be a Doggy Day!

It’ll be the perfect place to try out those new walking boots and fly your new kite. Maybe Santa brought you a camera or a new winter coat – although you won’t need that in the steamy 80+ degrees of the tropical Butterfly House!
