National Botanic Garden Visit & Picnic – In Person

Saturday June 10 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm EDT


It’s almost summer, and we’re going to go to the National Botanic Garden before it gets too hot!

Join us for this family-friendly exploration of the Conservatory and Outdoor Gardens, then enjoy a picnic (bring your own!) with fellow alumni. Executive Director Julia will be bringing homemade cookies for everyone!

How to get there: Orange, Blue, or Silver lines to Federal Center SW; 32, 34, & 36 Buses; DC Circulator National Mall route; some metered street parking. We will meet at the entrance to the Conservatory, which is on Maryland Avenue.

Note: There is no food or drink for sale at the Botanic Garden. You will need to bring your own food for the picnic. There are water fountains and bottle-refilling stations, and there are a deli and a pizza restaurant a few blocks away.

Additionally, this is not a formal, docent-led tour, which are still suspended. However, the USBG has a robust audio tour that you can do using your phone.

IN CASE OF SIGNIFICANT RAIN: The visit will still happen! However, we will only go to the conservatory, not explore the outdoor areas. The picnic portion will be canceled (although Julia will still bring cookies!)
