Bartram's Garden

This well-established living laboratory, outdoor classroom, and National Historic Landmark is a great destination for groups looking to engage with nature. Group tours for all ages engage visitors in inquiry-based programs about nature, art, and history. Groups will examine the life cycles of plants, learn about where their food comes form, explore habitats and animal camouflage, and more. Patriot Harbor Lines cruises on the Schuykill River are a can't-miss experience, and are available for group booking.
