The centerpiece of this 15-acre garden is the Crystal Bridge Conservatory, home to thousands of tropical and desert plantings. Programs and field trips are offered to a variety of grade levels. Programs include “Rainforest Ecology” and “Plants We Eat,” both of which are adaptable to any elementary grade. Field trips (grades 5-12) can be guided or self-guided and last 30 minutes to one hour. They also provide a Guided Scavenger Hunt program (PreK to 4th grade) and an Adventure Pack program.
The Crystal Bridge Conservatory is closed for renovation. Reopening fall 2022. The gardens and visitors’ lobby are still open for families to enjoy.
