Self-guided walking tours through extensive plant collections that support plant systematics classes in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Sitting on eight acres, with six greenhouses comprising about a third of an acre under glass, Marsh Botanical Garden offers support for researchers, faculty and students at Yale, as well as an informative and eye-catching experience for visitors. In the summer, the naturalistic beds and wildflower plantings provide color and attract birds and butterflies. In spring, bulb displays and early flowering shrubs and trees add to the season. Our plantings include many woody plants with surprising fall color, both from leaf and fruit display. In winter, visit the greenhouses where bananas and oranges could be ripening.

We offer free Tea and Tour events to Yale offices and units, who use the opportunity to show their staff the appreciation of a short on-campus field trip and visit to our gardens and greenhouses. Please inquire at eric.larson@yale.edu

Visitors who are not from Yale are welcome to visit for self-guided walking tours. For group visits, we provide a tour guide (or two if necessary), but we ask for a small honorarium to help us maintain the collections. Please call in advance for group tours and visits of more than six people. Admission is free. Donations accepted.

Dates of Operation: At times some of our greenhouse space will be closed to accommodate classes. Please check our calendar for more information.
