Interesting ‘woodland style’ gardens. Selection of indigenous plants (ie: tundra wildflowers)and forest trees. Enthusiastic volunteers work to keep gardens maintained. Small nursery and shop to Peru chase goods - funds support the gardens. Rely on public support mainly. Pleasant, relaxing outing.

The Botanical Garden is a green oasis in the middle of Anchorage. There are manicured gardens hidden in the untouched woods. It really helped me understand Alaska's plant communities.

The walk thru the gardens was most enjoyable. It is very well planned and surprisingly beautiful. We really enjoyed the use of vegetables in the gardens. My daughter was surprised to see how celery grows.
