Master gardeners offer free garden tours


Master gardeners offer weekly garden tours

Visit the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Demonstration Gardens each Friday beginning Oct. 4 to learn about plants that thrive in desert southwest landscapes. Master gardeners will offer free walking tours weekly from 10 a.m. to noon.

The Demonstration Gardens, at 8050 Paradise Road, contain more than 500 species of desert-appropriate landscape plants, including trees, shrubs, perennials, herbs, palms, cacti and agaves. Based on the interests of tour participants, master gardeners will highlight appropriate plants and explain their landscape uses and cultivation.

To join a tour, meet in the front lobby at 10 a.m. Walking shoes, sun protection and water are suggested.

In addition to scheduled tours, the grounds are open for self-guided tours weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
