Living Local

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Norfolk Botanical Garden (NBG) is celebrating Black History Month by offering free admission every Thursday in February.

The Garden celebrates the 220 African-American Works Progress Administration (WPA) workers who cleared dense vegetation and planted the first azaleas at NBG in the late 1930s,” NBG stated in a news release, adding that this is a way to honor their legacy.

Use this opportunity to explore the Garden’s 175 acres and take in the beauty of nature. Be sure to check out the Winter Orchid Display at the NBG Tropical Display House — it’s a must-see during your visit with blooming orchids and tropical plants.

This February, canine family members are welcome to explore NBG with their humans for February FIDO Fridays. Dogs are welcome year round on Sundays.

Members and members’ dogs are free with non-members’ dogs getting in for $5 (human admission applies).
