Organizer/AuthorHarry
The City is sponsoring a "community meeting" to discuss the conversion of the public space at the Botanical Garden at Strybing Arboretum into a paid-admission facility. It will be at 6:30 PM on Monday, April 6, 2009. in the Hall of Flowers (County Fair Building). It's next to the main entrance to the Arboretum at 9th/Lincoln.

The Park and Recreation Department, together with the Botanical Garden at Strybing Arboretum management, are planning to charge $5–$7 to enter the gardens and lie on the grass, sit on the benches, or watch the ducks. One or more of the four entrances are likely to be closed. This is outrageous! Please show up to voice your concern. Signs and costumes are welcome!
