What Have You Discovered This Summer?

As summer comes to a close, we are thrilled to share with you some exciting developments at the Garden that aim to enhance your next visit. The most enriching experiences here come not only from the beauty of the surroundings, but also in understanding and appreciating the depth of what occurs in nature.

To that end, we have committed to enhancing signage throughout our grounds, with a particular focus on engaging our guests. We’ve recently installed the first of 10 new large-scale interpretive signs in the Garden – a project designed to offer you an immersive educational experience. These signs, complete with QR codes, will link you directly to additional information on our website, allowing you to delve further into the fascinating facts behind our unique plants and landscapes.

We are incredibly grateful to the Elkins Foundation for their generous support in bringing this initiative to life, and for supporting our efforts to showcase the science behind nature’s beauty.

Visit us soon to see how the Garden changes from one season to the next, and get an up-close look at why life grows here.
