Cincinnati Nature Center
“A Place Like No Other”
The Cincinnati Nature Center is an amazing property for kids and adults alike, spanning 1,016 acres and 16 miles of hiking trails. Gardening programs include Identifying and Removing Invasive Plants from your Property and Gardening for Butterflies and Pollinators. The center also offers a rigorous Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist Program with The Ohio State University.
Going on now through June 2, the center features an extensive Native Plant Sale. Partnering with LaRosa’s and Graeter’s, pick up a free packet of native wildflower seeds at those locations.

Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens
“Adventure. Conservation. Education. Community.”
We know our zoo is world-class, and so are the botanical gardens! Celebrate National Public Garden Day on May 18 with five engaging and educational stations at the zoo. In July, adults join Dr. Olivia Carril in a Wild About Bees! workshop.
Or choose from one of many other Botanical Garden Education and Events options (like traveling with fellow gardeners to the English Gardens and Chelsea Flower Show). On select dates, the zoo offers a native plant sale at its Bowyer Farm and Wetland location, along with a Pollen Nation Celebration on June 8.
