About The Friends of the U.S. Botanic Garden
In partnership with the US Botanic Garden (USBG), we promote and inspire active botanical and environmental stewardship by providing financial support for educational programs highlighting the importance of plants to humankind.
Our goal is to support the educational outreach initiatives at USBG -- extraordinary programs and exhibits that delight, educate and inspire our visitors to become more active stewards of the plants that support life on earth. The Friends of the USBG help coordinate over 200 public programs each year at the Gardens, reaching thousands of participants.
