Personalized Professional Development for Schools
Holden Forests & Gardens is a combination of the Holden Arboretum and Cleveland Botanical Garden. The Education Department serves teachers and students at both locations. We have been delivering professional development to teachers in early childhood through high school classrooms for more than 30 years. We specialize in teaching content about the natural world and plants in cooperation with hands-on, engaging activities.
