Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County Continues ‘Pup-ular’ Poochfests
DOGS’ DAY IN THE GARDEN
Second Sunday of Each Month, January-May
(West Palm Beach, FL ) Calling all canine fur-babies – and their people parents, too! Mounts Botanical Garden is continuing its “pup-ular” Dogs’ Day in the Garden on the second Sunday of each month from 9 am to 3 pm – January 10, February 14, March 14, April 11, and May 9 (Mother’s Day).
This dog- and family-friendly monthly event will be held throughout the Garden, and regular admission applies: $10 (general); $5 (children 5-12), and free for members.
“Our guests really love being able to bring their dogs to the Garden for a relaxed stroll, which is why we decided to do this once per month,” says Rochelle Wolberg, Curator-Director at Mounts. “We have many great spots for photos and we encourage everyone to post online.”
