By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo - With the New Year here, many places in the community are adding fun things to do. In our monthly series with the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens we sat down with Director Tina Worthman to see what's going on at the gardens.

It's now time to start propagation and seeding in the new production house, so the gardens is looking for volunteers. This used to be a popular job for volunteers, but during construction it was put on hold. If you want to volunteer you can call the gardens or stop in and let them know you are interested.

There will also be an open house held on January 31st to show new and interested volunteers the new space and upcoming projects.

If you are looking to get out of the house this winter, but still stay warm the gardens will be hosting yoga on the second Sunday of each month at 2:30pm, with a gardening class on the third Sunday of each month followed by a meditation class on the fourth Sunday of each month.

Art Classes will be on the first Sunday, these coincide with the Artist Residency exhibit that is on display. This is possible from a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund.

Currently on display is Barb Gorges' quilts.

In Feb. & March there will be the Glass Art Show, for 2 months time.

Finally, the gardens are Library are teaming up for Get Mooned at the Gardens on January 20th at 8:30 p.m. It is the Red Moon Lunar Eclipse, we will have the library's and our telescopes on the 3rd Floor Observation Deck for this event.
