Artistic lighting of the garden areas will be strategically crafted by celebrated artist Kody Cava.
SLO Botanical Garden Executive Director, Chenda Lor, explains, “Nature Nights was inspired by Phoenix’s Desert Botanical Garden event, Luminaria. Nature Nights fills a need in San Luis Obispo County for off-season family attractions. Through a connection to nature, visitors will enjoy the mental and physical health benefits inherent to the garden experience.”
The SLO Botanical Garden sits midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Direct flights to the region, railway, and Hwys 101 & 1, coupled with ample accommodations make access to Nature Nights easy and an exceptional reason for a Central Coast holiday getaway.
The SLOBG emphasizes education, horticulture, research, art, environmental stewardship, and community engagement. Nature Nights is the event that exemplifies all that they stand for. The creative and experienced team assure a not to be missed experience.
