Conservatory Closed

To limit the risk of transmitting COVID-19 coronavirus, the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) has changed its operations. The Conservatory and gated outdoor gardens are temporarily closed to the public while Bartholdi Park and the Terrace Gardens remain open. Please monitor this website for updates to operating status. Many resources can be accessed online, including educational materials, virtual tours, informational videos, and our fall programs will all be online.

Every other Thursday throughout the fall (September through November), join District Trivia to test your familiarity with all things plants. This program is designed to be inclusive to all types of knowledge--plant science, history, pop culture, the culinary world, and more! We welcome budding learners to full bloom experts.

Each program features a host from District Trivia to facilitate the game and will last for approximately an hour. Play solo, phone a friend, or play with others in your home. We will be dividing players into breakout rooms during the program to play on teams!

Please note: Registration closes at 5 p.m. ET the evening befgore the program. Shortly after that, registrants will be emailed a program link and login instructions.
