Atlanta Botanical Garden

Visitors will experience the beauty of the garden's plant collections including ferns, roses, and orchids, as well as the rich diversity of animals that call the garden their home. The garden is the perfect place for students to learn about plants from around the world and their importance in food, medicine, the environment, and as raw products. Tours for older groups let them explore different biomes in the garden while learning about habitats, biogeography, and adaptation, or the work done in the Fuqua Conservatory. With the help of a scavenger hunt booklet, elementary students can self-guide through the garden.
