We're Committed to your Safety: Visiting Safely during COVID-19

School Programs

Teachers: We are working hard to be able to support you this fall! For over 70 years, Royal Botanical Gardens has been dedicated to creating meaningful learning opportunities for students of all ages. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to offer a variety of types of programs for school groups this fall, modified to ensure participant safety while remaining as engaging and relevant as ever. Watch this space to keep updated about what we have in store for school groups this fall.

At RBG, the foundation of our programs is inquiry-based and experiential learning. We want students to ask questions and follow their curiosity. Our educational field trip programs use active exploration and activities to engage students, and to immerse them in the natural world.
