Private Events

Engaged couples LOVE our venue! It’s the perfect combination of naturally inspiring indoor and outdoor spaces that makes for a truly unforgettable wedding day. Both affordable and flexible, our venue is also a great choice for parties, memorials, and business events.

Ponds and waterways are habitats for turtles

Youth Education

Kids are easily inspired by nature, and the natural world is ripe with educational opportunities. Our Youth Education programs offer virtual and in-person classes for children in preschool and elementary grades. Learn about wildlife habitats, geology, plant anatomy, water conservation, environmental stewardship, and more.

Visit The Gardens

If you haven’t seen our Rose Garden in prime blooming season, you are in for a real treat! And our six-acre property offers many more beautiful garden areas, including a Children’s Garden, Shade Garden, Rock and Salvia Garden, Waterfall Garden and more. No matter the season, it’s a fun and engaging place to visit!

Donate

Our Youth Education programs are made possible in part by charitable contributions including individual gifts, grants, and sponsorships. Donations help us pursue our mission to educate the community about our natural world.

Membership

Members enjoy an array of benefits such as discounts on plant purchases from our nursery and other local retailers, and free or discounted admission to hundreds of public gardens in North America, while helping our gardens to thrive.

Volunteer

Our nonprofit employs a small team of staff to get much of the daily business done, and volunteers fill the gaps. Volunteer support is crucial to key areas such as garden maintenance, propagation, and fundraising events. It’s also a healthy and fun way to spend time!
