For eight decades, Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) has connected people to the plant world. We do this not only to awaken people to plants’ beauty, diversity and necessity, but also to serve as a beacon for an increasingly urgent movement to preserve plant species and habitats and, by extension, our planet.

But as we celebrate our 80th year, we want to hear from you!

Do you have stories to share of your positive experiences at RBG

Perhaps seeing wildlife while hiking with your family, or participating in one of our programs and taking what you learned home to use at home? Or maybe you are an educator who brought your class to RBG for one of our school programs and your students got to see a turtle up close for the very first time!

Whatever your story is, we want to hear it!  When you think of these positive experiences, consider including: 

  1. What program you (or your child, students) were participating in? 
  2. Was this your first time at RBG or do you visit RBG often? 
  3. What did you learn while at RBG? 
  4. Was there a particular moment or memory of your time with RBG that stands out to you the most?  
  5. How has your RBG experience impacted your life? 
  6. How did you learn about RBG? 
  7. And any other details you would like to include! 

Feel free to support your story with photos and/or videos!
