Berkshire Botanical Garden

The Berkshire Botanical Garden is one of the nation's oldest botanic gardens, and focuses on plants indigenous to the Berkshires. Its 23 gardens serve as a living classroom with well-labeled plants for self-guided tours. Outdoor sculptures and architectural exhibits are interspersed throughout to enhance your class trip’s garden-viewing experience. Guided tours focus on seasonal highlights and provide in-depth explanation of the displays, along with presentations or demonstrations by garden staff. These can be arranged with advance notice.
