Mercer Botanic Gardens strives to make learning fun for all ages! Whether you join us on for a field trip or special event or use our educational brochures to learn at your own speed, we seek to cultivate your curiosity and increase your knowledge and love of the natural world by engaging you with plants. We offer both self-guided and staff-guided opportunities for children and beyond to allow for deeper learning and enjoyment of the outdoors. Keep an eye on our calendar for special event opportunities or call us to get details about touring the gardens or having Mercer staff host an outreach class at your school.
