Tour with a Garden Guide
Learn about the plant life in the Crystal Bridge by scheduling a tour with a Garden Guide. Tours are available at 10:00 am or 1:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Pay regular admission and get a guided tour at no additional charge. Please schedule at least 14 days in advance.
No time for an ecology class? No problem. Schools are always invited to tour the Crystal Bridge. Pick up a self-guided tour brochure and lead an exploration past towering palms, behind crashing waterfalls and along winding paths. Advance notice for groups larger than 15 people is recommended to ensure availability.
