Youth Classes & School Programs

Looking for a great GREEN field trip?

Memphis Botanic Garden is the place to go!

For optimal viewing, we recommend viewing the catalog in full-screen mode.

In an age when virtual reality is rapidly replacing real experiences, children need to breathe fresh air and play in green spaces more than ever. Your students will connect with the natural world as they participate in hands-on, outdoor learning at the Garden.

The Education Department at Memphis Botanic Garden has taken great care to incorporate your teaching objectives into all of our tours and special programs. Learning about ecological systems happens in ways that are not possible in the classroom.

In addition to plant science, the Memphis Botanic Garden offers hands-on programs on world ecosystems, multicultural studies, historical uses of plants, art in nature, environmental issues, and more. Learning at the Garden is fun, as well as educational! All classes include exciting and educational activities that make your students' visit one they won't soon forget.

If you have any questions, please reach out to one of our Education Coordinators at 901-636-4126 or email
