Teacher Professional Development Opportunities
The Conservatory is not only a great place for students to learn and experience something unique. When it comes to incorporating plants into classroom curriculum, it’s also home to a wealth of resources for teachers and other educators. There are endless possibilities for meaningful connections in science, ecology, gardening and greening, math, geography, history and art.
Remember, the Conservatory is free, so teachers are always welcome to visit and collect ideas for a field trip or classroom lesson. To learn more about group visits and to register your field trip, visit our Group Visits page.
