The Amy B.H. Greenwell Ethnobotanical Garden in Captain Cook will observe the birthday of its late founder on Saturday, Sept. 7, with free public admission.

Greenwell, born in 1920, was an accomplished native plant expert and part of the well-established Greenwell family that settled in the Kona area in the mid-1800s. When Greenwell died in 1974, she left care of the garden to the Bishop Museum.

Admission will be free from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Birthday cake and pupus will be served 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A guided walking tour of the garden’s native plants will start at 1.

For information, call 323-3318.
