Master Gardeners offering Weekly Garden Tours
Plan to visit University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Demonstration Gardens each Friday, beginning October 4, 2013, to learn about the plants that thrive in desert southwest landscapes. Master Gardeners will offer free walking tours weekly from 10 a.m. to noon.
The Demonstration Gardens, located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, NV 89123, contain over 500 species of desert-appropriate landscape plants, including: trees, shrubs, perennials, herbs, palms, cacti and agaves. Based on the interests of tour participants, Master Gardeners will highlight appropriate plants and explain their landscape uses and cultivation. To join this tour, meet in the front Lobby at 10 a.m. Walking shoes, sun protection and water are suggested.
The tours are open to the public. Plants in the Demonstration Gardens are identified by botanical and common names. In addition to scheduled tours, the grounds are open for self-guided tours weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
