Lauritzen Gardens Gone Wild!
From posed to playful, you will encounter elephants, rabbits, hogs, hens, deer, frogs, bears and more as you explore the garden in a whole new way. Opportunities abound to interact with art, take memorable photos, and to learn about the natural habitats, interesting habits, and distinctive personalities of these awe-inspiring creatures created by nationally-acclaimed animal sculptor Dan Ostermiller.

In honor of 50 years of friendship with Omaha's Sister City Shizuoka, Japan, this show features an array of brilliant blooms, unique design compenents, and gifts from the people of Shizuoka to the people of Omaha.
Japanese Ambience Festival
For an entire weekend, the garden grounds are alive with merriment as guests celebrate the joys of autumn and experience the Japanese culture first-hand.
