The Botanic Garden at Oklahoma StateTBG

Located just west of the OSU campus, The Botanic Garden is a premier site which is home to the award-winning Oklahoma Gardening television show. Turfgrass and ornamental horticulture are the main research emphasis, but the unique geographic location near the confluence of two watersheds, Stillwater Creek and Cow Creek, allows to serve as a host for various research projects dealing with environmental and water management issues.

The Botanic Garden also functions as a major teaching and extension resource for the department and Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. In addition to serving as an outdoor classroom, many workshops, educational events and community events occur throughout the year.
