People of all ages, interests, and abilities participate in programs, take classes and stroll the grounds year-round. Within the nine laboratories of the Garden’s Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Plant Conservation Science Center, scientists and graduate students conduct a wide array of plant research. The Garden is one of only 17 public gardens accredited by the American Association of Museums. Its Lenhardt Library contains 110,000 volumes?including one of the nation’s best collections of rare botanical books.

In 2015, more than one million people visited the 27 gardens and four natural areas, including prairie and woods, uniquely situated on 385 acres on and around nine islands, with six miles of lake shoreline.

The Chicago Botanic Garden is easy to find and easy to reach, approximately 20 miles north of Chicago. Admission is free, with a parking fee for non-members.
