Guided Tours of the Alaska Botanical Garden
ABG offers guided tours daily at 1:00 pm, June through August.
Since we cannot guarantee the availability of a volunteer docent for all tours, we recommend calling ahead if you definitely prefer a guided tour versus a self-guided visit, or if you have a large group: (907) 770-3692
All tours meet in the retail nursery area near the Gift Shop.
A docent will guide you through the Lower and Upper Perennial Gardens,
the Rock Garden, the Herb Garden, and the Wildflower Trail.
The tour will last about one hour ending back in the nursery
