Celebrate Gardens With Us

If the thousands of tulips blooming on grounds aren't enough to lure you to Lincoln Park Zoo this weekend, Saturday is National Public Gardens Day, when we celebrate the green spaces we share. We'll be creating "seed surprises" used in guerilla (not gorilla!) gardening. These are mixtures of seeds, compost and clay that can be tossed into difficult sites to help green up the city. Join us at The Patio at Café Brauer Saturday between 10 a.m.-2 p.m. for this free activity.
