Red Butte Garden


Bring your students for a field trip and enjoy both a chaperone-led plant-filled field class at Red Butte Garden and a dino-mite self-guided field trip at the Natural History Museum of Utah

Groups with more than 60 students will be split into two groups. Visits booked to NHMU and the Garden on the same day outside of the arranged joint field trip experience are strongly discouraged due to scheduling complexities.

All RBG/NHMU Partner Field Trips are full for the 2021-2022 school year.
