For more than half a century, the North Carolina Botanical Garden has been dedicated to
conserving our state’s unique botanical legacy. Today, we are recognized as the nation’s most
comprehensive center of knowledge on the regional flora of North Carolina and the southeastern
United States. We cultivate more than 1,100 acres of garden and conservation areas, maintain
the largest herbarium in the southeastern United States, safeguard rare and endangered plant
species from extinction, and educate new generations of botanists and scientific leaders.
