Gardens and Natural Areas Open

Our main display gardens are open normal hours, along with our Garden Shop, Daily Plant Sale, educational exhibit hall, and art gallery. Masks are required indoors.

Our other gardens and nature preserves (including Coker Arboretum, the Piedmont Nature Trails, Battle Park, Mason Farm Biological Reserve, and Parker Preserve) are also open, dawn to dusk, every day.

The North Carolina Botanical Garden is a conservation garden. Our guiding mission is to inspire understanding, appreciation, and conservation of plants and to advance a sustainable relationship between people and nature.
