Teachers, Schools, and Field Trips

While the U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory is not open, we are currently not booking field trips. We encourage you to visit our Resources page for lesson plans, our Field Trip Resources tab below, and our virtual tour opportunities to connect your students with the plant world.


Thank you for thinking of the U.S. Botanic Garden as an extension of your classroom. Whether through science, art, storytelling or curiousity, our living classrooms offer amazing opportunities for plant-based learning.
