Program Description

This two-hour experience is ideal for larger groups that can switch between the botanical garden and the TreeWalk. Students explore the treetop canopy of the temperate rainforest on an aerial adventure on the TreeWalk and our many gardens and learn about the importance of forests, biodiversity, and the interconnectedness of trees with people, plants, and the planet. 

Whether you teach preschool, elementary, high school or post-secondary UBC Botanical Garden is an excellent place to enhance your classroom learning.
