Chicago Botanic Garden

The Chicago Botanic Garden (CBG) is a  385-acre Garden featuring 24 display gardens and four natural areas, uniquely situated on nine islands surrounded by lakes. Their mission is to promote the enjoyment, understanding, and conservation of plants and the natural world.

At the Garden, you can take a course, attend a lecture, buy a gardening book, find 2.2 million garden plants, or have your mystery plant identified. Visitors to the CBG website can help themselves to detailed plant and gardening information.

The CBG also offers a series of internships and seasonal jobs for youth and adults. See Green Youth Farm and Windy City Harvest.
