Garden in the Woods
New England Wild Flower Society's Garden in the Woods offers and unequalled educational experience regarding native New England flora, including over 100 rare and endangered species.
In New England Wild Flower Society’s renowned botanic garden, you’ll discover an unrivaled collection of both rare and common native plants offering a changing tapestry of flowers and foliage through the spring, summer, and fall seasons. The garden shapes the glacially carved landscape, wet and dry areas, wandering stream, and canopy of trees into a wonderful array of habitats displaying the beauty and diversity of native plants.

Garden in the Woods remains open year-round for educational classes and courses.

If you have a greater interest in native plants, please consider joining our Certificate in Native Plants program. We also offer classes at many other locations throughout New England if that is more convenient to where you live.
The Garden has joined other members of the American Public Gardens Association in support of the Let's Move initiative which promotes healthy food choices and exercise among America's youth.
