Educator Workshops

Memphis Botanic Garden offers several science and nature-based teachers' workshops throughout the year.

These workshops are designed to supply educators with knowledge, curriculum, and resources for exciting hands-on activities. Workshops include Project Wild, Project Wet, Nature Explore, Project Learning Tree, Early Childhood, and more.

All workshops help educators meet multi-disciplinary standards, while incorporating an appreciation and understanding of our world.

Each year, we also host a Teacher Preview Night, to give our educators a taste of what programs we'll be offering over the coming academic year. This is a great opportunity to plan your field trip schedules so you can get those requests in early. It is also a relaxing way to get to know other educators and share a fun evening out at the Garden!

For information on upcoming workshops, call Gina Harris, 901-636-4110, or gina.harris@memphisbotanicgarden.com.
