The Myriad Botanical Gardens offer learning opportunities for students of all ages. The primary purpose of these programs is to help kindle a sense of curiosity about the world that we live in. Classes and tours are interdisciplinary, hands-on, and support state and national standards. Below you will find a list of class descriptions offered for the 2014-2015 school year as well as guided tour information and tax exempt group rate costs (10+ students). The Myriad Botanical Gardens requests that there be one chaperone per ten students. Please contact (405) 445-7094 or email email@example.com
