docent Tom HiltonThe glorious gardens and well-groomed trails at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens offer endless possibilities for discovery. It’s our good fortune – and yours – that we have qualified and personable docents who simply love to show the Gardens to newcomers and repeat visitors who want to see and learn more.

No matter what your level of interest or horticultural expertise, a tour is a great way to become acquainted with the Gardens…or to find out what’s new since your last visit.

Free docent-led tours are offered at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. every Thursday and Saturday from June 1 until Columbus Day weekend. No reservations are required, and there is no charge except regular Gardens admission. To take part in this enriching experience, simply meet your guide by the Saxon Fireplace in the Visitor Center and enjoy the walk.
