Upcoming Special Events at Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens

Gazing in the Garden

Saturday, April 1
8 to 10 pm

Our popular free-to-the-public event returns! As the sun sets and sky darkens, view celestial bodies through telescopes. If you are interested in tips on buying your own telescope, arrive at 8 pm and pick the brains of members of our co-sponsor Oglethorpe Astronomical Association as they set up scopes for the event! Dress for the weather and be aware we cancel the event with inclement or cloudy weather, often attempting to reschedule the event at a later date during the season. Address all inquiries to Liz at (912) 652-7981.

Spring Plant Sale

Friday, April 14 and
Saturday, April 15, 2017

Held once again just prior to Easter, CGBG's Spring Plant Sale is the place to get your hands on those more unique or hard-to-find annuals, perennials, Georgia native, shrubs and trees for your property. This year we are slightly later in spring, allowing us to offer a slightly different array of plants that are out-of-winter-dormancy and enjoy the April warmth. Free parking on site, the sale takes place on the event field near the Lakeside Pavilion. Be a smart shopper -- bring a wagon or small garden cart to collect those finds and to get them to your vehicle more easily! For more information, contact the Gardens at (912) 921-5460 toward the end of March.
