Tulsa Public Gardens Day

Loading Events

The Tulsa Zoo is celebrating Tulsa Public Gardens day on Friday, May 12 through Saturday, May 13 with other local organizations. During this event, guests are invited to check out our gardens while taking part in fun activities. Be sure to enjoy our new Conservation Garden featuring pollinator, water-wise and rain sections.

Our second annual Pollinator Plant Sale  will be happening at the zoo’s gift shop. Pollinators — such as  butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees — are extremely important; become part of making Tulsa a Monarch City by purchasing various plants for your garden. Go on a self-guided safari plant tour of exotic and native vegetation, available on request at Admission and Membership windows.
