As part of the Garden Conservancy's mission to save and share outstanding American gardens for the education and inspiration of the public, we organize and co-sponsor lectures, symposia, Open Days, and garden tours in a range of different locations across the country. Many of the programs are presented in partnership with botanical gardens, our preservation garden partners, and other like-minded organizations.
Our first national speaker series, Saving American gardens, is presenting sixteen programs in nine cities in 2018.
Open Days is our most extensive public educational program, and includes special site-specific Digging Deeper programs in addition to self-guided garden tours.
Through these educational programs, we hope to raise public awareness of the important role gardens play in America's cultural and natural heritage.
