April 2015, TBD: Migration Mania - For children of all ages who like birds and butterflies.  The Garden, with its green canopy and fresh water ponds, provides a welcome rest and refueling stop for migrating birds.  Birders have long flocked to the Garden, but this light-hearted event imparts valuable knowledge to the uninitiated about natural phenomena while entertaining with arts, crafts, games and an egg hunt.

April - July 2015: Key West Art Garden - Explore a unique blend of sculptured art with Mother Nature that enhances both. The Key West Art Garden showcases local artist’s art work made mostly out of recycled materials displayed as part of nature within the beautiful grounds of the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden. Art displayed throughout the garden allows visitors to reignite their sense of exploration finding each treasure and appreciating the workmanship in the natural setting around it. The Key West Botanical Garden’s collection of native plants and species is the perfect venue to enjoy nature and art.
