Field Trips

Visit the Columbus Botanical Garden and let your students “learn naturally” in a fun interactive outdoor setting! The Garden offers both guided and self-guided programs giving your students the opportunity to discover all that nature has to offer!


Field Trips

Come and learn about YOUR Columbus Botanical Garden! The garden is ever changing and there are new plants and animals to discover in every season. Each field trip to the garden will include lessons on the history of the garden and the plants, animals and natural processes that make the unique and beautiful garden that you get to explore! Lessons are tailored around the time of year you attend, and the topics can include: pollinators/pollination, winter blooming flowers, herbs, vegetables, bee keeping, native plants, trees, bird migration, carnivorous plants and MORE!
