Founded in 1969, Clark Botanic Garden is a 12-acre living museum and educational facility. We are dedicated to understanding and appreciating the world's plant life through horticulture, education and research. Collections at the garden include native spring wildflowers, conifers, roses, perennials, daylilies, wetland plants, rock garden plants, herbs, butterfly plants, medicinal plants and over a dozen collections of particular plant families.
Clark Botanic Garden also has a wonderful gift shop. The Shop in the Garden has many new and beautiful items available, and it is open during all of the garden's programs. Members of the Garden receive a 10% discount in the Shop.
The Fanny Dwight Clark Memorial Garden, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded to support, enhance and preserve Clark Botanic Garden as a serene, tranquil oasis for all to enjoy. We develop and present educational programs for both adults and children, to better appreciate the natural world. All funds raised and donated to the Foundation are used for these purposes. These 12 acres were bequeathed by Grenville Clark in memory of his wife Fanny to remain a sanctuary for birds, plants and visitors. Louisa Clark Spencer, daughter of Grenville and Fanny, is an active member of the Board.
