Lauritzen Gardens, along with many other public gardens across the United States, will celebrate National Public Gardens Day. It is viewed as the unofficial beginning of the gardening season.
National Public Gardens Day was founded by the American Public Gardens Association to raise awareness of America's public gardens and their role in promoting environmental stewardship and education in communities nationwide.
