And for any further incentive, admission to the Botanic Gardens on York Street is free for all Colorado residents April 22, July 22, Aug. 25, Sept. 26 and Oct. 28; Chatfield admission is free the first Friday of every month through the year. That's more than enough opportunities between now and the exhibition's end next January.
