Looking for something to do this weekend? You might check out Boerner Botanical Gardens on January 25th, because there’s a lot going on at Winterfest.
Winterfest lasts from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. First, there is a guided winter nature walk. This is a great choice if you’ve been feeling cooped up indoors all winter long. It’s also a great choice if you’d like to sneak in some winter birding.
The Betty Brim Children’s Museum will also host a special crafts station for the kids.
There’s going to be plenty of food, too. Hot dogs, chili, chips, and hot drinks are included in the admission prices (see below). If you prefer something a little bit more elegant then the Zili Hospitality Group is also hosting a Sunday brunch buffet, which they hold at Boerner every single week. You can register for the buffet online by visiting www.opentable.com.
Admission for the nature walk is $5 per person. Kids ages 5 and under can do the nature walk for free.
Admission for the children’s crafting activities are $4 for members and $6 for non-members.
The gardens are located at 9400 Baerner Drive in Hales Corners, WI, if you’ve never been there before. They also host many other great events throughout the year, so be sure to keep an eye on their calendar to see if there’s anything else you might want to enjoy.
Meanwhile, we’ll continue to keep you updated as we continue to spot other cool community events throughout the Milwaukee metro area. We love supporting our local community!
Cindy I love picket fcenes and especially with roses on them. Beautiful,Beautiful!!! My daddy made a white picket fence to go around mom’s flowerbed back in the late 60’s and would you believe I still have it. It is around my flowerbed now. It’s all shabby chic now but I love it. Good luck with the new friend.
