Oak Woodland: 5 Year Celebration @ Descanso Gardens
Sep 14 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

In Fall 2014, we opened the Oak Woodland, which transformed an uncultivated behind-the-scenes area into seven additional acres of native plant garden. Join us to learn more about the iconic trees that dot the landscape, and celebrate five years of this beautiful part of Descanso.

Entry to the Oak Woodland: 5 Year Celebration is included in the price of regular Descanso Gardens admission.
