Visit to Missouri Botanical Garden

The Missouri Botanical Garden was founded in 1859 and is a United States National Historic Landmark. It is a global leader in botanical research, science, and conservation. Its displays provide an oasis of beauty in the city of St. Louis. The Garden encompasses 79 acres (31.97 ha) of horticultural displays that includes an extensive bulb collection, a 14-acre (5.66 ha) Japanese garden, and large collections of rare and endangered flora from around the world.

During Thursday morning, of our 2016 World Daffodil Convention, we will have the opportunity to visit the Garden’s Science and Conservation Division, one of the world’s most active and leading botanical research centers, which includes the Garden’s herbarium of over 6 million plant specimens and the Peter Hamilton Library, one of the largest and most extensive botanical libraries in the world. In addition to a staff of more than 150 research scientists, associates and graduate students, hundreds of national and visiting scientists conduct short and long-term botanical research projects here each year.
