Garden hours are from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Make a Difference Day was created by USA WEEKEND as a national day for helping others. The event, which millions participate in around the country, is held on the fourth Saturday of October.

At the Garden, volunteers will be on hand to assist with mulching, ground maintenance and planting tulips and daffodils that will showcase the Garden during the spring season. Volunteers will also be able to aid in the operation of Goblins in the Garden, a family festival that features crafts, storytelling, environmental education and a haunted maze for children and their families.
