Aligning with the return of spring, UNO employees are invited to attend the current indoor exhibit, "Wonders Under Glass," as well as the outdoor gardens.
With use of their MavCARD, employees and their immediate families will be able to access Lauritzen Gardens, Omaha’s premier botanical garden, between 9 A.M.- 5 P.M. from Friday, March 11, through Thursday, March 31.
Immediate family includes spouses/significant others, children, siblings and parents/grandparents. Employees must be in attendance with their family members in order to receive the free admission.
Employees can begin reserving their tickets today using the non-member ticket field and discount code UNOSPRING during checkout to claim complimentary tickets. To gain access, UNO employees must present their badge - along with all accompanying family members - at the front desk.
