The St. Louis Chapter proudly offers a wonderful outing to the Missouri Botanical Garden, also known as Shaw’s Garden. Founded in 1859, the 79 acre garden is the nation’s oldest botanical garden in continuous operation and an oasis in the city of St. Louis. Today, 153 years after opening, the Garden is a National Historic Landmark and a center for science, conservation, education and horticultural display.
Our group will depart from the Hyatt Regency Hotel by private coach to Shaw’s Garden. Upon arrival at the Garden you will be met by a Garden Educational Representative who will direct you to the Garden Tram for a 30 minute, narrated Tram Tour of the complete 79 acre garden.
Following the Tram Tour guests will enjoy lunch in the porcelain sculpture Spink Gallery, complete with wine and a guest speaker from the St. Louis Herb Society.
After lunch there will be time to visit the Garden Gate Shop for its wonderful selection of home furnishings, gift items, plants, books, and garden accessories. Additionally, for those interested attendees, the St. Louis Herb Society speaker will provide a hosted tour of the on-site Herb Garden, a ten minute walk from the Spink Gallery.
Guests will return from this relaxing and educational day by private coach to the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
