The Botanic Garden
The road to discovery, exploration and learning runs between two oak groves into The Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University. Everything with the 100-acre plot – from its walking trails to its native plants – is meant to nurture research, promote discovery and inspire new ideas. The Botanic Garden is a living, multidisciplinary laboratory currently used by several departments within Oklahoma State’s Division of Agricultural Science and Natural Resources in addition to the local and regional communities at large. Practices and projects include drought response; water quality; sustainable practices and energy; and reptile and amphibian studies.
Engage the senses, unleash your imagination and wander a trail of discovery at The Botanic Garden, home of Oklahoma Gardening. Enjoy the walking trails and the beautiful display gardens featured on Oklahoma Gardening and explore ways to build a more sustainable living environment.
The Botanic Garden Ambassadors
Volunteers for The Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State University are called TBG Ambassadors. Our TBG Ambassadors have gained a wealth of knowledge and formed lasting friendships with other gardeners with similar interests in horticulture, education, and serving their communities. Through their time and energy, the TBG Ambassadors have reinforced the mission and goals of The Botanic Garden at Oklahoma State.
Their participation has provided the garden with a valuable resource and without their commitment, we would not be successful expanding The Botanic Garden!
Reasons to be come a TBG Ambassador
- Expand one's horticulture knowledge through formal and hands-on education
- Share knowledge and skills with others
- Make new friends and share in fellowship
- Support a valuable community resource which contributes to a higher quality of life for all
