Most tours of the Georgeson Botanical Garden are self-guided. Admission to the Garden is $5 per person. We encourage all tour drivers to inform visitors of this policy. Maps are available at the entrance kiosk. Signs and brochures are located throughout the garden.
Please pay in the admission box located at the garden main entrance. Your contribution helps keep the lawns mowed and students employed. No amount of money keeps the giant dandelions in check!
With Tour Guide
We offer guided tours with our docents/staff. The price is $8.00 per person with a minimum of $75.00 per tour. These tours last about 1 hour and may be scheduled by calling 474-7222. There will be a $100 charge for tours cancelled on the day of the tour. Late arrival of more than 15 minutes after the scheduled time is a cancellation. We have a small staff, so early arrivals are not possible. Please wait at the garden entrance until the time of the tour.
Everything in the Garden is an experiment. All plants are in trials, and data are being collected. Enjoy the garden, but please do not pick or harvest anything including fruits, vegetables, and flowers.
