Description:
April 5 to August 31 9am-4pm
Leap into spring with Ribbit Exhibit, a whimsical, family-friendly presentation of 23 larger-than-life frog characters placed in vignettes throughout the Garden. Each with their own name and story, the charming garden sculptures are ribbet-ing.

The playful sculptures by artist Andy Cobb include Zenny meditating on a leaf on the Garden’s Pond, Bentley and his tortoise friend Tortuga ambling along the California Oaks Trail, dapper Floyd and his elegant partner Grace cutting the rug amongst the flowers, and many others.

All of the sculptures by the North Carolina-based Cobb are handcrafted from copper, colored with natural patina. Visitors will find them perched in trees, playing jazz, enjoying a cup of coffee on a garden bench, and more.

A robust roster of activities such as guided tours, live music, family scavenger hunts, and family fun days are planned while the exhibit is on view. “Ribbit Exhibit provides the Garden with the opportunity to engage visitors of all ages in a variety of experiences that highlight the diversity and beauty of the natural world,” says Perales. “We encourage guests to hop on to our calendar often for special activities throughout the spring and summer!”
