Newts return! Each year, the winter rains prompt newts to migrate to the Garden’s Japanese Pool where their mating behaviors can be easily observed. Docents will be on hand to provide garden visitors with an up-close look at newts at all stages of their life cycle, and to answer questions about these amazing and adorable animals. Free with Garden admission.
