SELF-GUIDED TOURS

Self-Guided Tours – See the Garden through the eyes of Walt Bubelis,  Professor Emeritus of Horticulture, through his seasonal self-guided tours. Use your smartphone to scan the QR codes posted throughout the Garden to learn more about each featured plant.

Bird Tour brochure – The Kruckeberg Garden is home to over 40 bird species. Download our self-guided bird tour and checklist, or pick one up at the Garden kiosk.

BEFORE YOUR TOUR

All visitors must remain on the paths to avoid soil compaction and damage to plants. The upper garden is flat, but not paved. The path to the lower garden is relatively steep (beyond ADA standard slope) but in some cases can be manageable by wheelchairs. We recommend that you contact us in advance of your tour if you have concerns about accessibility.
