The public is invited to attend the Garden Walk on June 8th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. rain or shine, hosted by the Munroe-Meyer Guild, a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities through fundraising for the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Munroe-Meyer Institute.

The Munroe-Meyer Guild's 46th Garden Walk features five fantastic private Omaha gardens and the public garden at Joslyn Castle that individuals can stroll through to view unique and creative displays in landscaping, plants, flowers and water features.
