United States Botanic Garden

From roses to orchids, the rainforest to the Mid-Atlantic, rare and endangered plants to the latest in home gardens, you will find a world of plants and environments in the United States Botanic Garden. Any time of year, you'll see something beautiful in bloom at the U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory, the National Garden, and Bartholdi Park. Teachers are welcome to bring students to visit the garden for their own educational activities or to participate in the garden's programs. The downloadable How Plants Work: A Guide to Being Green is a plant-based curriculum designed to help students explore four big ideas (Are Plants Like Us, A Puzzle of Plant Parts, Surviving Against the Odds, and Plant Multiplication) during a visit to the Conservatory.
