The U.S. Botanic Garden offers special workshops throughout the year for teachers on how to use the Garden as an extension of the classroom and engage students in plant-based learning.

Please see our Calendar of Events for upcoming programs.

DC Teachers' Night

The U.S. Botanic Garden and the DC Environmental Education Consortium host an event for DC educators that can help get students learning outside and bring the environment into the classroom. Learn about student field experiences, professional development opportunities and leave with new hands-on activities and take-away lesson plans.
