Missouri Botanical Garden

"To discover and share knowledge about plants and their environment in order to preserve and enrich life."  
Founded in 1859, the Missouri Botanical Garden is the nation's oldest botanical garden in continuous operation and a National Historic Landmark. The Garden is a center for botanical research and science education, as well as an oasis in the city of St. Louis. The Garden offers 79 acres of beautiful horticultural display, including a 14-acre Japanese strolling garden, historic architecture, and one of the world's largest collections of rare and endangered flora. For over 163 years, the Garden has been an oasis in the city, a place of beauty and family fun—and also a center for education, science, and conservation.

The Garden wouldn't be the Garden without our Members, Donors, and Volunteers.
The Missouri Botanical Garden's mission is driven by the need to protect and conserve plants and their ecosystems. We seek to inspire and educate all members of our local region about the benefits of being good environmental stewards through responsible and sustainable use of natural resources. At the Missouri Botanical Garden, we are driven to be dedicated leaders in stewardship, both at home and in the world. In addition to the 79-acre Garden in south St. Louis, the Missouri Botanical Garden has two other properties outside the city limits.

The Missouri Botanical Garden is easily accessible from the St. Louis metro area and conveniently located near Interstate 44.
