Whether you will be making your first school trip to Tucson Botanical Gardens this year or returning once again, I want to formally welcome you and your students to what I like to call our “Outdoor Classroom.” Our five and a half acres provide an ideal platform for connections between school curricula and the natural world. The diversity of plant life and environments available at the Gardens means that we are able to support virtually any academic goal. With this in mind, I invite you to consider which objectives you would like to meet and contact me at least two weeks before your visit to see how a class trip to the Gardens can meet those goals. With your input, our staff and volunteers can plan a unique and worthwhile experience for your students. You can reach me via phone or email (listed below) most days of the week. Here’s to a wonderful and enriching school year – and many thanks for making Tucson Botanical Gardens a part of it!
