Photographers: To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all of our visitors, please leave your monopods and tripods at home. We appreciate your cooperation.

For an exceptional opportunity to photograph Garden Glow, including the use of monopods or tripods, we encourage you to register for one of our special Garden Glow photographer-only evenings (view a list of available dates on our online class catalog).
