Idaho Botanical Gardens

About the Idaho Botanical Gardens

The Idaho Botanical Gardens is the place to be this summer. These cultivated specialty gardens filled with stunning plants and flowers focus on bringing beauty to a previously barren land. There are many themed gardens for you to walk through and explore, including a Children’s Garden and a Lewis and ClarkNativePlantGarden. The Idaho Botanical Gardens not only provide a beautiful and scenic location for walking and perusing local plant life, it also has special events designed to provide entertainment for the local community. One such event is the Movies at the Garden. During this event, a movie is shown at dusk on the outdoor big-screen. The funds raised by this event are used to promote the Idaho Botanical Gardens’ youth and adult educational programs, creating an appreciation for gardening and conservation in participants of all ages.

Movies at the Garden – The League of Their Own

This Friday, August 23, 2013, join the Idaho Botanical Gardens as they show the movie “The League of Their Own.” The setting of this movie takes place during World War II. During this time, the first all-women’s baseball league was formed to help keep the sport alive while the men were off fighting the war. This movie joins the women’s baseball league in a historical depiction of the trials of this era. Gates open for this event at 7 p.m., while the movie begins around dusk at 8:35 p.m. and ends approximately at 10:40 p.m. Admission prices vary by age, and tickets can be bought at the gate or in advance online. This is a family-friendly event appropriate for all ages. You can make it an evening out by packing a picnic and bringing a blanket for a relaxing and enjoyable dinner in the scenic and luscious atmosphere inherent to the Idaho Botanical Gardens.
