Featured Event

Summer Stroll at Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden
New Self-Guided Walk & Talk

This summer, we’re introducing a new self-guided Walk & Talk every month. This fresh take on Walk & Talks continues with July’s self-guided tour, featuring Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary.

The Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary is one of Minneapolis’s botanical treasures. This self-guided tour, written by Garden curator Susan Wilkins, wends its way through the 15-acre Garden’s collection of over 600 native plant species, displayed in a variety of habitats which support a wide array of birds, insects, and other wildlife. This easy-moderate walk traverses natural surface, park trails, and boardwalks, with some steps and unpaved slopes.

Find downloadable and online versions of this Walk & Talk, along with others from this summer at our Walk & Talks event page.
