For the month of June, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden celebrates Pride!  We celebrate the diversity of all people, just as we honor the diversity of plants and ecosystems in our world. We invite and welcome people of all abilities, backgrounds, races, religions, ages, cultures, genders, and sexual identities as visitors, members, partners, volunteers and staff. As an organization, we are committed to creating an inclusive, diverse, equitable and welcoming culture in which the contributions of all are valued, respected and appreciated. We are dedicated to making our gardens, exhibitions, programs, collections and facilities accessible to all.
