The 8th Annual Redwood Garden Party

Sunday, October 10, 3-5 p.m.

In the gardens of 900 and 904 Nash Street N in WIlson, NC

This annual fundraiser for the Imagination Station Science & History Museum is centered around the California coastal redwoods that peek above the Wilson skyline. The tradition began in 2013 to highlight local history and learn a little about environmental science in the process. Each year this event is held in a Wilson garden where Wilson's tallest redwoods grow.

This year we are returning to the gardens of 900 and 904 Nash Street N, where three of Wilson's redwoods stand tall. Learn the stories of how their redwood trees took root and why these non-native trees grow here. We will also share with you the exciting plans we have in store for 2022 as we celebrate 30 years of imagination.

Please join us for this afternoon of good friends, good food, and good conversation to support a good cause. You can purchase tickets or take the extra step to become a Redwood Sponsor below.
