About Us

We are the Plant Heroes!


Join Us and Start Exploring


Plant Heroes strives to spark curiosity about nature and science in all children through topics related to forest and tree health. Through our website we also hope to spotlight the amazing work our public gardens do in helping protect the plants and ecosystems we all depend on.

Our program provides hands-on, nature-based learning materials for educators to engage children in topics of plant health, ecosystem balance, and forest health.

Plant Heroes is brought to you by the Plant Protection Program, part of the American Public Gardens Association and funded by the U.S. Forest Service.
