Public Engagement Projects

The Botanic Garden is the perfect venue for academic researchers to use to engage with the public about their science. We hold events and activities throughout the year at both the Botanic Garden and Harcourt Arboretum. Please contact us if you are interested in participating.

If you are an academic interested in working with the Botanic Garden or Harcourt Arboretum to deliver your Pathways to Impact, please contact Alison Foster, Acting Director ( More information about the kinds of impact activities that are possible can be downloaded here.
