Plus, say cheese! Frame-up and snap a photo with one of the many outdoor frames and share with the world #framesandgames. Connect with nature, reconnect with family and friends, boost your gaming & teamwork skills, and definitely have fun!

Look for educational signage that will accompany themed frames with eco-friendly messaging, part of the Garden’s environmental action mission. Additional coordinating programming through adult education and youth & family programs will compliment this summer event. Combining outdoor activities, community engagement and connecting with nature – Frames & Games is sure to be a big hit with NBG visitors. Not only will visitors have fun framing-up and gaming, the Garden has 175 acres to explore – the WOW children’s Garden, Butterfly House and garden, nature trails and more than 65+ gardens to discover. There is something for everyone.

Frame Up

We need your Help

Do you have old picture frames in your attic or laying around – we could use them outdoors this summer. We are accepting FRAME donations at our Baker Hall Visitor Center, near the main parking lot.

No smaller than 24in by 36in – just the frame please, something sturdy for outdoor use.

*If we are not able to use your donated frame, we will pay it forward by donating them to a school, group or organization.
