Professional Development

The education instructors at Huntsville Botanical Garden endeavor to provide interesting and interactive programs for teachers that will help educators bring the world of nature to students in fun and exciting ways.

HBG’s Professional Development Program for Teachers provides educators the tools and training they need to enrich their students’ understanding of ecology, plant science, chemistry, zoology and conservation. Our programs align with Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core Learning Standards and STEM (Science, Engineering, Technology and Math). Whether you want to build a school garden or find more engaging ways to introduce inquiry and observation skills into the classroom, the Garden’s experts are ready to train you!
