Behind the Scenes: A Tour of the Dana Greenhouses

Almost all of the plants in the Arboretum begin their lives in the Dana Greenhouses. Join greenhouse staff for a behind-the-scenes look of the greenhouse growing process, from seed to sprout to seedling to tree.

Accessibility: This program involves a small amount of walking over level ground, but is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible due to narrow passageways within the greenhouses.

Audience: This program is geared towards adults.
