The Purdue Arboretum showcases numerous resources for educators to provide students with a wide array of both in-person and remote learning experiences.

In-Person Experiences

Come tour a world-class facility that includes 25 greenhouse rooms totaling 34,800 sq. ft., growth chambers, a tissue culture laboratory, and three teaching laboratories.


Purdue hosts a wide variety of events from academic departments, student organizations, athletics, arts and entertainment, to sustainability-related events.

The Purdue Arboretum is an excellent space for students to learn and interact with the natural world around them.  Here are some fun activities that students and kids can do when they come for a visit!

Virtual / Remote Resources

Purdue Plant ID Pal is a great way for students to learn how to identify trees, flowers, fruits and vegetables.  This site also has quizzes for students to practice what they've learned.

Let's Grow Native!

Native plant species offer a multitude of benefits. One of their most important contributions to biodiversity is that they provide food for herbivorous insects, typically caterpillars, which in turn support entire food webs. Most herbivorous insects are specialists, meaning they can only eat a small subset of plants.

The Purdue Arboretum is a collaboration between the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture and Physical Facilities Grounds Department
