How is your garden standing this rainy summer? The Zoo’s gardens are doing great! The horticulture staff wants to share those gardening secrets with you onWednesday, August 21, through a walking garden tour that’s free with regular Zoo admission.

The August 21 tour focuses on creating successful water gardens, drawing from the assortment of beautiful water features all across the Zoo. Included with the tour, you’ll get tips on hardy and non-hardy plants to include in your water garden, along with maintenance, containers, pumps, filtration and more.

Master Gardener Lori Fenton, along with Zoo horticulturists, will lead the 90-minute walking tour. Reservations are not required; just meet in front of the Zoo’s Conservatory, near the Aquarium, at 10:30 a.m.

This is the third tour of the Watch It Grow series, which started in June. The last tour, on September 18, focuses on the trees, shrubs, perennials and annual plants in and around the dynamic Africa! exhibit, mimicking Africa’s landscape in an Ohio-friendly setting.

This summer, the Zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (last admission) and is located on the Anthony Wayne Trail (US 25), four miles south of downtown Toledo.
