Botanic Garden

The garden was established in 1999, under Chancellor Richard Wallace as part of the campus beautification efforts. August of 2009 marks the 10th anniversary of the Mizzou Botanic Garden. Since its inception, the garden has become a living museum of thousands of plants displayed amongst famous icons, such as Jefferson’s original grave marker and the Columns of Academic Hall. The garden continues to delight campus visitors with its beauty and serves as a fertile academic environment for educators, researchers and students.
