What you'll do

The walking tour will start with a brief wildlife safety talk. Please note that bears can be in the area, both inside and outside the fenced area. Next, I will highlight the entry beds and we will work our way up to the front gate. Once inside the fence and plaza area we will stop to talk about the history of ABG including dedicated volunteers and staff that helped transform ABG over the last 34 years. We will follow the half mile paved loop around to the several perennial gardens, research plot and outdoor classroom. The tour will end with the newest addition, the greenhouse, then we will exit through the nursery & gift shop. Please note that the season and weather will ultimately determine the plants that we see. April-mid May can be early for some plants and the gardens might be muddy and or slushy. Peonies are usually in full bloom from mid June to mid July. Mid September might be a little late for some plants, it can be rainy and cool. Tours in Spring, Summer & Fall will cover the history of the garden, identify available plants, wildlife, trees and also general local information. You will leave with new found knowledge about some of the hardy plants in Alaska.

All guests will be required to follow any addition regulations from ABG at the time of your tour. All tours are subject to operating hours of the Alaska Botanical Garden and may be canceled with limited notice.

I've been a longtime supporter of the Alaska Botanical Garden (ABG) and it is a very special place to me. Over the last 10 years I've both worked and volunteered at ABG and I was even married in Lile's Garden! I'm now offering tours with the permission of ABG, but completely separate from ABG. My education in Environmental Science and passion for plants and connecting with people drew me to ABG as a Freshman looking for an internship. It worked out really well and I look forward to connecting more people with one of Anchorage's hidden gems! I am not affiliated with the Alaska Botanical Garden. All information, thoughts and opinions expressed on this tour are solely my own.

Brie’s passion for gardening and knowledge about the garden were infectious as we walked around the beautiful winter landscape. It felt more like hanging out with a friend than being on a your. There was also plenty of time to snap photos and I never felt rushed. I was also pleased to learn that this is a pesticide free garden! If you are interested in learning more about Alaska’s borreal forest, this is a great tour.
