Display Garden to Open

Our gardens and natural areas are open. We ask that you follow standard safety precautions to help us keep our gardens open and safe for everyone.

  • Keep your distance. Stay at least six feet from other visitors, staff, and volunteers whenever possible.

  • Bring a mask. They’re required indoors, including to use the restroom. Masks are not required outdoors, but they’re still recommended if you’re unable to maintain six feet of distance from others.

  • Do not visit if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. See the full list of symptoms on the CDC website.


As part of the University community, the North Carolina Botanical Garden operates under the same conditions as the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
