The focus of the Utah State University Botanical Center is education and research on conservation and wise use of plant, water, and energy resources. The H. Paul and Mary Jane Rasmussen Teaching Garden (pictured) is a living example of example of color, texture and water conservation in the garden.
The Varga Arboretum is arranged according to the irrigation needs of its more than 300 trees and shrubs. There’s also an urban fishery, walking and biking trails, wetland areas that support birds and other wildlife, a volunteer-tended garden that provides thousands of pounds of fresh produce to local food banks, a seasonal farmers market and a full schedule of classes, workshops, educational field trips and other events.
