Norfolk Botanical Garden is Going to the Dogs
And We’re Getting the Biscuit!

Norfolk Botanical Garden is celebrating September with Fido Sundays (Sept. 4, 11, 18 and 25). Bring your best buddy for a stroll and enjoy the serenity and the beauty of one of Norfolk's greatest treasures every Sunday in September. Dog admission is only $5 and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center! (Regular admission applies to humans).

We are so excited to be included in this partnership, so come on out, enjoy the fall weather, and support both the Botanical Garden and the animals of the Norfolk Animal Care Center. For details, visit the Norfolk Botanical Garden website.
