Here at the Garden we are thankful for... Can you guess?... Plants of course! They provide us with oxygen, food, shelter, medicine, and so much more!

This Utah native plant is having a great hair day. Speaking of hair, Native Americans use the leaves from this plant as a shampoo to promote hair growth.

Birds are thankful for plants as well. Plants provide food, habitat, and protection to birds and animals.

We're not only thankful for plants, we are thankful for you - our members and visitors. We wouldn't be a Garden without your support. We wish you a safe and happy thanksgiving to you and your loved ones.
