Red Butte Garden


April & May 2021

Did you know that April is National Poetry Month? From April 1 - May 31, the Garden celebrates this unique literary art by hosting the poems written by our eleven local poetry contest winners in stand-up display boxes placed throughout the Garden. Look for them along your path. We feature other seasonal poems throughout the year.
