Shangri La Botanical Gardens & Nature Center

We’ve Got Gar Fish!

Fish have returned to the Meditation Pavilion pond! Upon entrance and exit of the gardens, many guests enjoy watching for the fish to swim by or underneath their feet. This pond has been absent of fish since Tropical Storm Harvey leaving many to ask if they would ever be coming back. Wildlife Curator, Robert Morgan, was able to find, catch, and restock Spotted Gar to the pond. In addition to restocking the fish, Robert also maintains a healthy pond environment and feeds the gar all year round. Come by the gardens, and see if you can find the gar in the Meditation Pavilion pond!
