State Botanical Garden of Georgia

There is so much to see and learn at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia! Students and scouts will delight in exploring the 313-acre horticultural conservatory, where they can ask conservation ecologists questions, study bird migration, and challenge themselves to an explorer hunt in the international or rainforest garden. Younger learners will learn about the forest ecosystem through a puppet show before participating in sensory-filled activities. Students and scouts may also take a hike and get their hands wet catching critters in stream ecology activities.
