TOLEDO — The Toledo Zoo’s new garden tour series begins in June and will take guests through the zoo’s
gardens and grounds to better understand how its 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 vegetables, water gardening, using native plants in the landscape and more.
The series takes place June-September and one on Oct. 24.
The tours run from 10:30 a.m.-noon, rain or shine. Guests are encouraged to dress for the weather and
wear comfortable walking shoes, as the tour encompasses the entire zoo.
The cost is $10 for Toledo Zoo members and $15 for nonmembers, per person, per tour. Space is limited and
reservations are required. Visit www.toledozoo.org/gardentours to make reservations.
Guests will also get a sneak peek at what the zoo has planned for summer annual displays and take home
some tips on how to start and grow healthy annuals, vegetables and indoor foliage plants.
