About the Garden The mission of the Mizzou Botanic Garden is to support the University of Missouri in the areas of education, research, extension, and economic development. To this end, the Garden is to serve as a public resource providing educational opportunities through the collections, display, interpretation and conservation of plants suited to central Missouri in a manner which inspires, educates and delights visitors of all ages. For those of you who have not been to campus lately or are first time visitors, our garden is the MU campus. We have turned our environment into an exceptional and beautiful learning opportunity for our students, faculty, staff and visitors. We hope you will visit often as the garden changes with each season and grows with each passing year.
