Birmingham Botanical Gardens is currently closed.
Due to the current public health state of emergency, the Birmingham Park and Recreation Board voted March 16 to close the Gardens and Garden Center, with an unspecified date for reopening, in an effort to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). In addition, Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens programs, events, and activities have been canceled or postponed through April 30. Please check back for updates. We extend our sincere hopes for the good health and well-being of the entire community.

Celebrate each season of the Gardens by discovering its environment through garden walks, stories, nature themed painting and crafts, and special snacks. Spots are limited, so please pre-register.

Springtime is here! Join us as we decorate colorful paper egg cartons and plant seeds to take home and grow. As always, if weather permits, we will tour the Gardens in their beautiful spring splendor! Little ones will be given seeds from our Free Seed Exchange to take home and plant.



Refunds (minus a $15 processing fee) will be given for Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens programs priced at $25 or more if notification is made at least 10 business days prior to class start date. (You are always welcome to send another person under your registration if you cannot attend.) Transfers may be made to programs of equal value within the same series (e.g., Children's Summer Camps, Saturdays in the Gardens, etc.) at no additional fee. We reserve the right to cancel classes due to lack of participation or other unforeseen circumstances. Please note that programs are held rain or shine; in extreme weather conditions, programs may be canceled for your safety and the safety of staff and volunteers. If we cancel a program for any of these reasons, we will issue a full refund.
