Royal Botanical Gardens

The Royal Botanical Gardens (RBG) are the largest botanical gardens in Canada, a National Historic Site and have been recognized by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve, protecting 1,100 hectares (2,700 acres) of environmentally sensitive areas. Through displays, research, tours, demonstrations, trails and conservation activities, the RBG teaches us all about the importance of plants and nature, and how best to become environmental stewards in our own communities. Download a map before you visit, and be sure to check their website to learn about their COVID-19 protocols. During Digital Doors Open, the robust RBG at Home program offers videos and activities for all ages. Learn from RBG experts as they answer your gardening questions (see the video below). There’s a Culinary Corner of downloadable recipes for things like Lilac Honey Cake or Coconut Carrot Energy Balls, an informative blog, lots of activities for kids, and exciting teacher resources (including Virtual Field Trips and Lesson Plans).
