COVID-19 UPDATE: ALTHOUGH THE BOTANIC GARDENS GROUNDS ARE CURRENTLY OPEN TO VISITORS, ALL BUILDINGS ARE CLOSED. VISITORS ARE ASKED TO ABIDE BY SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES.

Many in-person classes and workshops have been rescheduled, cancelled, or moved online, and registrants have been emailed with details. We will continue to make decisions about future programs as we have more information.

UW Botanic Gardens continues to follow all advice and directives set forth by the University of Washington, which are detailed at length on the UW Novel Coronavirus Information Page.


We offer ProHort classes geared to landscape professionals and Ecological Restoration classes for restoration practitioners. Classes include both classroom time and field instruction, and participants are encouraged to bring their workplace challenges and success stories to the group for discussion.

Everyone is welcome to register for these classes, but be aware that content will be taught at a professional level. AmeriCorps Education Awards can be used to pay for our classes. Contact us at urbhort@uw.edu or 206-685-8033 with any questions.
