TULSA, Oklahoma -- The grass may not quite be green yet, but things are already blooming out at the Oklahoma Centennial Botanical Garden. Saturday, April 2, was opening day for the garden this season.
Officials say they planted 300 trees around the lake and tons and tons of tulips.
"Three thousand tulips and daffodil bulbs, and we have planted those with the help of volunteers and they are just starting to come up," said Carrie Henderson with the Oklahoma Centennial Botanical Garden.
On opening day, entomology students from Oklahoma State University brought nets and spent the day catching butterflies and insects. They also helped visitors identify their finds.
The garden is open every Saturday from now till October. Admission is free, and there all kinds of activities. It is located at North 52nd W. Avenue and West 43rd Street North.
