Field Trip: U.S. Botanic Gardens–Monday, April 15 at 10:00 am

Join us for a guided tour of the conservatory of the U.S. Botanic Gardens. As a living plant museum, there is so much to take in. This tour will cover the Highlights from the Conservatory Collection

Want to visit a desert, a tropical paradise, and the Mediterranean? Want to travel back to the U.S. Exploring Expedition and the Jurassic period? Take a tour with a knowledgeable guide who will connect the exotic plant world to everyday life. You might see bananas, cacao, and coffee ripening on the tree or learn about the next big breakthrough in medicinal plant research.
