Gardens for BIPoC
Graham Visitor Center, Washington Park Arboretum
Gardens for BIPoC is a new, free monthly tour that takes place in the Washington Park Arboretum, serving folks that identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or a person of color. These groups have historically been underrepresented and underserved in public garden programs. We hope that our free tours can help remove some barriers BIPoC folks may have to accessing our gardens as well as create a safe and inviting space for BIPoC to connect with one another in nature!
Our tours include a casual walk through various areas of the Washington Park Arboretum, feature seasonal viewing of collections plants, explorations of botany, and the cultural significance and history of each plant for the BIPoC community will be highlighted along with the history of the UW Botanic Gardens.
UW Botanic Gardens is committed to enriching the lives of all community members with free public tours. Our 1st Thursday Free Arboretum Walking Tours are also guided walks through the Arboretum and open to the general public.
Registration is not required for these tours, but are on a first come, first serve basis.
