Movies for a Cause at The Idaho Botanical Gardens

Movies for a Cause

Movies for a Cause is a program created by the Holland and Hart Foundation. The purpose of the program is to support local charities and non-profit organizations while giving families a safe and fun venue for entertainment. The Idaho Botanical Gardens sponsors a movie night every other Friday in order to raise funds for educational programs for children and adults. These programs include school tours, day camps, and classes to teach the benefits of gardening, horticulture, and conservation. The movies are shown on the Garden’s outdoor big screen, giving a unique and fun viewing experience. Families are encouraged to bring blankets and pack picnics for the movie. Food and drink will be available for purchase if needed.
