“We are excited to give the public one more opportunity to join us for Sip and Stroll this summer. With cooler evening temperatures, this is the perfect time of day for visitors to enjoy a relaxing stroll while taking in the sounds and sights of nature. It is a beautiful time of year to see the bright colors blooming in our Gardens,” said Angie Mason, Executive Director of Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center.

This evening event takes place during golden hour at Shangri La Gardens, which provides an excellent opportunity to capture all Mother Nature has to offer. Guests can expect to capture the different movements of wildlife within these hours, such as birds returning to roost for the evening.
