For a truly unique, one-of-a-kind gift, consider a framed herbarium specimen, collected from our very own plants at the UW Botanic Garden. These professionally framed pressings artistically showcase beautiful plants in flower or in fruit. Proceeds directly support the Otis Douglas Hyde Herbarium.
Make a gift to the UW Botanic Gardens in someone’s name. You can give a general gift to the the Director’s Fund, or choose from nine different priority gift funds, such as Rare Plant Care and Conservation Fund or the Union Bay Natural Area Fund.
The UW Botanic Gardens offer a variety of education programs for everyone. Give the nature lovers in your life a gift certificate for one of our Public, Professional or Youth and Family classes. Contact Continuing Education at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-685-8033 to order.
Visit the Arboretum Gift Shop to find a delightful selection of gardening and outdoor books, plant-themed jewelry, natural body products, tools for green thumbs, and much more. Proceeds benefit the Washington Park Arboretum.
