Tips for your visit
Interacting with Wildlife
The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is home to squirrels, foxes, geese, ducks, rabbits, and other wildlife. We ask that you do not feed any of these animals during your visit and respect their space.
Only certified service animals are allowed in the Grand Conservatory. Gentle and well-trained dogs are welcome to visit the outdoor garden spaces with you; however, they must be kept on a 6-foot or shorter leash at all times. In addition, owners are asked to please respect the Botanic Gardens grounds and clean up after their dogs.
Visitors are welcome to picnic in open areas of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens grounds. However, we ask that you please deposit any trash, recyclables, and compost in designated receptacles when you are finished.
The Botanic Gardens is a treasured space and source of peace for many. In order to preserve its beauty, we ask that you do not pick flowers, disturb plants, trees, or art installations, climb trees, throw rocks, or leave litter behind. In addition, building fires, carving anything into Botanic Gardens property, or bringing unapproved alcohol to the premises is strictly prohibited.
Those guests or photographers coming to the Gardens with the express purpose of taking staged or posed photos indoors must make a reservation and pay the fee. In order to maintain our high quality visitor experience we are no longer allowing photography sessions during open hours. Photography reservations can be made for 9am or 3pm times, Tuesday thru Saturday. Staged or posed photography includes but is not limited to: senior pictures, wedding, engagement, maternity, family, prom, graduation photos etc. Please take a look at our Policy and Contract below, and call 307-637-6458 to schedule a session before arriving at the Gardens.
