We're opening the season with a garden soiree to celebrate the natural beauty of Kiawah Island with live music and delicious food and drink, all in our beautiful Naturally Kiawah Demonstration Garden in Night Heron Park! Register early here.
We will have garden tours led by ecologists from the Conservancy and the Spring Island Trust (SIT); music by local band Southbound 17; food from local food trucks; beer, wine, and nonalcoholic beverages; a native plant sale and more.
On the tour, Lee Bundrick, Sr. Ecological Health and Conservation Coordinator for the Kiawah Conservancy, will discuss embracing nature by using native plants in your landscape, while Karl Ohlandt, Landscape Ecologist for SIT covers how to bring birds and butterflies to your garden using native plants. If you’re a gardener, be sure to ask questions and collect information!
Planted in 2013, the Naturally Kiawah Demonstration Garden has grown into an excellent outdoor classroom showcasing plants that are native or adapt well to local conditions, including deer, heavy rain, hurricane strength winds, and more.
All are welcome to attend! Food and beverage is available for a donation. We will be taking cash and credit. Advance registration requested. Spaces are limited so get your tickets today!
Bring your own seating. We will be following all Town of Kiawah Island COVID-19 ordinances and protocols. In the event of inclement weather, a rain date will be set.
