Education is one of the driving forces of our mission here at the West Virginia Botanic Garden.  Each year we offer a growing numbers of classes, educational walks, and workshops on a variety of subjects ranging from natural history to gardening, wellness, and art.  Five weeks of nature camp take place each summer.  Field trips and group tours are available year-round.
