Supporting Lifelong Learning, for People and Planet

We are dedicated to inspiring, engaging, and educating nature-lovers of all ages. Education at the botanic garden features classes, workshops, and camps that introduce community members to the wonders of plants and ecology, the importance of conservation and sustainability, and wellness on all levels. 

Our educational programs are designed to provide a hands-on experience with nature while cultivating connection between people and the natural world. Our garden-based early childhood and school-age experiences include field trips, outreach programs, workshops, scout programs, and camps. Our adult programs aim to build an inclusive community by bringing people closer to nature, science, creativity, and wellness.
