When the sun goes down, the creeping creatures and plants at the Botanical Gardens come to life for Creatures After Dark! See what happens to our collection of cool creatures and plants under spooky lighting. We'll have dozens of creatures made of LIVE plants including dinosaur succulent topiaries, a massive megalodon, a moss-made pterodactyl, a giant buffalo, a dragonfly, turtles, and more planty friends taking on new characters giving "plant-life" a whole new meaning! Looking for some real dinosaurs? Our friends from Past & Present will be showing off their life-size fossil casts including a giant T-Rex skull and a Triceratops skull and some life-like dinos hidden among the foliage. 

A special thank you to our friends from Past & Present! Past & Present is Buffalo's very own Science and Nature store as well as a Fossil Museum that is free and open to the public! They're your one-stop shop for all things minerals, crystals, fossils and more! Located down the street from us at 3767 South Park Ave in Blasdell, NY.

Experience the exhibit during the day and see how different the creatures appear! Coleus & Creatures is open every day September 1-October 31 from 10am-4pm!
