What can/can’t I bring to the event?

We highly encourage all attendees to bring a bag lunch. The Wildflower Center does have a small cafe, but we’d like our attendees to have time to mingle and talk during lunch instead of waiting in line to buy something.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

While we will have a list of attendees, check-in will go more quickly if you bring your printed ticket with you.

What are my parking options?

Parking is available at the Ladybird Wildflower Center as well as street parking outside the venue.
