Be A Kid Again at Flashlight Tours

The Garden invites guests of all ages to be a kid again, while they beam their own flashlights along the self-paced trails to capture night-blooming plants and animals that chirp, whirr and flutter in the desert after dark. Everyone pays child admission during August for Flashlight Tours. Valid at Admissions and use promo code KIDS.
