We have implemented several new guidelines and procedures to help ensure the continued health of our guests, staff and volunteers. Guests must adhere to all safety protocols.

  • Advanced online reservation/timed ticketing through the Garden’s website at dmbotanicalgarden.com or over the phone by calling 515.323.6290 are strongly encouraged. Entry is not guaranteed to those who arrive without a ticket with the exception of members, Library Adventure Pass participants, Museums for All participants, and participants of the Pineapple Program tokens. During times of high visitation there may be a brief wait to insure the safety of guests, volunteers and staff.
  • The number of guests allowed in during each block will be capped to ensure appropriate social distancing guidelines.
  • Face coverings are required at all times indoors and outdoors, excluding children under age 2. Guests will not be allowed entry without adequate face covering.
  • Maintain a 6-foot distance between yourself and others not in your group.
  • Do not visit the Garden if you are ill, exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or have received a positive test for COVID-19 in the last 14 days; if anyone in your household is ill, exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or have received a positive test for COVID-19 in the last 14 days; or if you have been in contact with anyone who is ill, exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or have received a positive test for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  • Trellis Café will be open Wednesdays thru Sundays 11-2.

We look forward to safely welcoming you to your Garden and thank you in advance for adhering to these procedures to help keep everyone safe and healthy.
