ANNIVERSARY: America’s National Garden

10_year National Garden at the United States Botanic Garden

2016 marks the 10th anniversary of the National Garden at the United States Botanic Garden. After five years of construction, the National Garden opened to the public on October 1, 2006. It provides “living laboratories” for environmental, horticultural and botanical education in a contemplative setting.

The National Garden is the result of a successful collaboration among the U.S. Congress, the Joint Committee on the Library, the National Fund for the U.S. Botanic Garden, the U.S. Botanic Garden and the Architect of the Capitol.

Not only is the National Garden a wonderful oasis on Capitol Hill, this feature of the U.S. Botanic Garden will also be a national treasure for generations to come.
