The health and well-being of Mt. Cuba Center staff, members, guests, and community is always of paramount importance.

In light of Delaware Governor John Carney’s stay-at-home order, Mt. Cuba Center is canceling garden visitation, classes, and events until the order is lifted and the threat to public health has sufficiently abated. An opening date for the gardens will be announced once we determine when we are able to safely welcome guests.

We will issue a credit or full refund to anyone who registered for classes or purchased tickets. If you have questions about a class you are currently scheduled to attend, please contact us at 302.239.8807 or

Additionally, we are canceling our annual Wildflower Celebration on Sunday, April 26. This would have been our 15th annual Wildflower Celebration, and we are deeply saddened not to host this wonderful event this year.

In lieu of visiting the gardens in person, we welcome you to visit us virtually in our series of online garden tours in spring, summer, and fall. You can find these tours on our website at You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube for regular updates and beautiful garden photos and video.

We continue to monitor the COVID-19 news and guidelines and will prioritize the safety of our staff, members, guests, volunteers, and community above all else.
