Garvan Gardens on Facebook

Field Trips K-12

Garvan Woodland Gardens is a 210-acre outdoor classroom perfect for field adventures. Teachers and their students are welcome to explore the Gardens on their own or by guided tours. Guided tours are led by trained volunteers or staff and provide information about the history of the Gardens, as well as particulars about the major Garden features and plant collections. Tours are adapted to the group’s age, curriculum focus, and for those with special needs.

To help us better serve your group the day of your visit, all school groups and youth organizations must make advanced reservations for their visit to the Gardens. We request that you schedule your visit at least two weeks before your visit date.
