The grounds of the BGA are usually open year round from sunrise to sunset for the enjoyment of the community. We do not charge for admission or parking but do encourage donations to help with maintenance. We hope that our Gardens will inspire our visitors to turn away from non-native plants in landscaping. It’s one of the easiest things you can do personally for the health of our environment. To learn more, we encourage you to get a copy of Doug Tallamy’s book, “Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants,” which we sell in our Visitor Center.
Please Note: We strive to make our gardens accessible to everyone. There is handicapped parking in in front of our visitor center. The visitor center itself, the area in the front of the gardens, and some trails, are wheelchair accessible. However many of the trails are gravel, and some are hilly, so some areas may not be accessible for all visitors.
We have an EXTREMELY FRAGILE plant collection, and for that reason, we have very specific rules for visitors. Please help us keep our plants healthy and thriving, and read the Garden Rules prior to visiting us.
