July 22nd Thursday Picnic in the Garden
A Fundraiser for the Alaska Botanical Garden
Alaskan summers are meant to be enjoyed outside! Join us Thursday evenings this summer June 3rd - August 26th from 6:00-8:00pm for a beautiful picnic dinner in the Garden catered by South Restaurant. Invite friends or family to share delicious food amongst the flowers, then afterward stroll along our 1/2 mile loop trail and discover the Garden in peak-bloom. This is a private event and the Garden will be otherwise closed to visitors during this time.
Picnic dinners are prepared with the environment in mind. ABG's goal this year is to limit plastic and packaging waste as much as possible. Dinners will be served in reusable stainless steel bento boxes made by ECOlunchbox and drinks in glass mason jars. After you enjoy your meal, all dining-ware is to be returned to the Garden's designated stations (bento boxes, mason jars, and silverware). This will help us further our mission to promote conservation and employ sustainable practices.
We will not provide disposable to-go boxes at this event; if you wish to take any leftovers home with you, please bring your own to-go container or consider purchasing an ECOlunchbox from our gift shop!
