San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas has extended its offer of free admission to furloughed federal employees and contractors, and their families, through Jan. 25, park officials announced.

The garden is offering free admission 9 a.m.-5 p.m. to those workers, including their spouses and children, who have lost pay during the federal government shutdown, which is now the longest such closure in U.S. history.

Furloughed federal employees and contractors must show a valid federal identification at the park’s Welcome Center, according to the announcement. Spouses and children must be accompanied by the furloughed employee or contractor to receive free admission as well.

San Diego Botanic Garden is located at 230 Quail Gardens Drive in Encinitas. For more information, go online to www.sdbgarden.org/, call 760-436-3036 or email info@sdbgarden.org.
