What We Do

Our mission is to inspire a love for plants and nature through programming, classes, and botanical displays. Admission to the Gardens and Greenhouses is always free!

Interesting Info

In 2018 we had two Titan Arums bloom in our Greenhouses. Titan Arum bloom events occur rarely throughout the world's botanical gardens.
We are free and open to the public and offer low-cost/free classes and tours for children and adults.
We have collections of native plants, orchids, cacti, tropical plants, spice and fruit plants, and a diversity of early plants such as ferns and spike mosses.
