Science & Nature


Marie Selby Botanical Gardens and the master site plan, that will protect and preserve 15-acres of bayfront property, is featured in the newly opened exhibit Celebrating New American Gardens, on display at the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) in Washington DC. As the only botanical garden in Florida featured, the exhibit showcases 21 gardens from across the United States that have created new gardens or renovated a garden within the last five years. The USBG presents this new exhibit through October 15. 

As part of the exhibit, photos, drawings, landscape designs, and project descriptions share the story of Selby Gardens and its new Master Plan. Just as plants change and grow, these gardens featured in the exhibit are making changes to better prepare for their own future and to showcase new plant collections, create spaces for people to connect with nature, and foster sustainability.

Other gardens represented include Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania, New Orleans Botanical Garden in Louisiana, Portland Japanese Garden in Oregon, and other public gardens from across the nation.
