Sawtooth Botanical Garden’s exhibits feature plant communities from the sagebrush steppe, riparian, montane, and alpine regions of Idaho, as well as beautiful perennial gardens that thrive in the local climate.
Sawtooth Botanical Garden offers classes for adults on vegetable gardening, care of orchids, native edibles, and medicial plants, as well as programs and activities for kids, including summer camps with a focus on learning about the plant world.
