Our Garden is a place for learning and growing — we hope you can join us soon!

Many of our programs, classes and events here at The Botanic Garden are free — some do include a registration fee. Proceeds from paid events benefit the Garden in many ways, including allowing us to continue attracting high caliber presenters! Please plan to offer a donation when you attend a free program, class or event. You’re able to make a donation online through MyNorth Tickets when you ‘check out’ or you can bring your donation to the event. Please follow our Facebook Events for real time updates. Thank you!

May - October: Garden Explorer Backpack Program

From May-October, stop by the Visitor’s Center during our business hours and check out a Garden Explorer Backpack with nature-inspired activities for children (and their families) to enjoy! Each backpack has several children’s garden or nature books, a bird identification guide and binoculars, a mini microscope, magnifying lenses, a pictorial garden scavenger hunt, directions to build a fairy house with natural materials, equipment for leaf and bark rubbings, and more. The backpacks can be checked out for the day for FREE! Parents and/or caregivers can use the materials to explore the garden and park with children. The Visitor’s Center is open Mondays-Saturdays from 9am to 5pm and Sundays from 12pm-5pm. Here’s a sneak peek of the items waiting to be discovered by little Garden Explorers…
