Garden Open for Twilight Thursdays this Summer

Our display gardens, Garden Shop, Daily Plant Sale, educational exhibit hall, and art gallery are open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays from June 2 to September 1. Per UNC policy, masks are now optional indoors.

Our other gardens and nature preserves (including Coker Arboretum, the Piedmont Nature Trails, Battle Park, Mason Farm Biological Reserve, and Parker Preserve) are 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.
