The Garden exists to connect people to plants in order to support a healthier quality of life for the region. Our vision is to inspire, encourage, and catalyze our community to take part in conserving our regional ecosystem.
Open year-round, the Huntsville Botanical Garden contains diverse ecosystems to explore within its 118 acres. From grassy meadows to woodland paths, aquatic habitats to stunning floral collections, the Garden invites guests of all ages to discover the beauty and wonder of the natural environment. Stroll along the nature trails while admiring collections of Alabama’s native plants. Play freely in the Children’s Garden after encountering the fluttering butterflies in the nation’s largest open-air butterfly house. Find serenity in the cool shade of the trees, surrounded by the sounds of nature. With additional events, exhibits, and programs throughout the year, the Garden is a source of plant conservation, education, and celebration for all.
We are committed to elevating our community by maintaining living plant collections, offering strong educational programs, and participating in specialized research. We inspire citizens to explore their connections to the natural world and encourage them to join us in creating a community-wide garden that celebrates the unique biodiversity of our region.
