School Programs


Tens of thousands of children participate in the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum's hands-on, science-based learning programs each year. Highly organized and packed with activity, Arboretum field trips utilize the gardens, greenhouses and research plots to address science standards in every season. Teachers can also bring the Arboretum to their classroom through the Plantmobile. Or create your own learning habitat for your students to explore.
