Poetry Walk

Sunday, April 22, 2018 -
1:00pm to 3:00pm

Poets have always sought out nature as inspiration for their poems and as a place in which to write them. As a celebration of National Poetry Month, join the Botanic Garden and Nimrod International Journal as we explore the connections between poetry and nature at "Green Writing: Celebrating the Earth with Poetry"

Take in the beauty of spring as you explore the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces and the Children’s Discovery Garden. Readers stationed throughout the Terraces will perform their favorite nature- and environmentally-inspired poetry, as well as work from the pages of Nimrod, and readers stationed in the Children’s Garden will perform kid-friendly nature poems about crawly worms, muddy puddles, shining rainbows, and more.

You can also get your own creative juices flowing by adding a haiku to our haiku tree for the chance to win free passes to the Garden. The food truck Coffee House on Your Street will also be onsite with specialty coffees, tea, and baked goods for purchase from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m.  This event is free with regular admission to the Garden. For more information, contact the Garden at 918-289-0330 or info@tulsabotanic.org  or Nimrod at 918-631-3080 or nimrod@utulsa.edu

Admission prices are FREE for Garden members; $8 for ages 13+; $4 for ages 3–12. Children 2 and under are free. Only service dogs are permitted, except for specifically designated Dog Days/Nights (check calendar for upcoming dates). For map/directions, click here
