TIG Program Details

Running from September to May each year, this program is based on college-readiness and citizen science for ages 13 – 18.

Join other teens who are interested in gaining experience working closely with Garden staff and volunteers in a fun and interactive plant-science adventure this year! You and the team will contribute to international scientific databases with the help of experienced plant biologists – giving you skills and experiences needed for college and beyond. Students meet once a month for three hours.

How to Read a Plant Label

As a place of education, research, exhibition and conservation of desert plants, the Garden provides information about plants using many different techniques. One of these methods is through labels. These labels provide the Latin name used by the scientific community, its common name, where it grows and when it blooms.

You can customize your Garden experience further by downloading the Garden app. It includes trail guides, maps, garden tour, plant information and pictures, and a learning center that helps you care for your plants at home. You can download the app through iTunes or Google Play for 99 cents.

The Garden app was developed by Clarisoft & MuseumXP and Garden staff members.
