The North Carolina Botanical Garden is a "conservation garden." “ Our guiding mission is to inspire understanding, appreciation, and conservation of plants in gardens and natural areas and to advance a sustainable relationship between people and nature.”

The North Carolina Botanical Garden has been a leader in native plant conservation and education in the southeastern United States for more than 30 years. It was a delight to wander through but this was a busy day again and we all could have used more time to really appreciate what was here. At the time of our visit there was some sculpture in the garden that was lovely to look at.

There are many areas of this botanic garden that are sure to delight. The Garden's new Education Center was dedicated on Oct 12, 2009 and is now open to the public. Designed to achieve Platinum level LEED certification, it was built with private contributions.
