The Missouri Botanical Garden is generally regarded as one of the three best botanical gardens in the world. Since joining the District, a wide array of new gardens have been developed, including the Iris and Daylily gardens, the Nanjing China garden, and the popular Children’s garden.
Through significant donor support, major science education, and research facilities have been built and renovations have been made to the Climatron, and Tower Grove House and the Museum Building. Special exhibits and programs such as the Chihuly, Chapungu, the Lantern Festival, the Whitaker Music Festival, and the Best of Missouri Market, Garden Glow, and Flora Borealis have made the Botanical Gardens a vital part of St. Louis life. Dramatic increases in the number of visitors, volunteers, and education programs since the Botanical Garden joined the District demonstrate its vitality as a community treasure.
The Botanical Garden’s attractions also include three additional area campuses: the Sophia Sachs Butterfly House, the Shaw Nature Reserve, and the EarthWays Center.
