Teacher Workshops

COVID-19 Update:  Duke Gardens has begun a phased reopening, with phase 1 limited to Duke students, faculty & staff with a Duke ID, timed ticket and symptom monitoring. We do not have a date for phase 2 at this time. Read more here.

This decision is in keeping with Duke University’s policies aiming to minimize health and safety risks to the Duke community and beyond, and to encourage social distancing to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The temporary closure applies to all indoor and outdoor areas

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to joining you for teacher workshops again in the future.

All information is subject to change on short notice. See more updates and advisories from Duke University at coronavirus.duke.edu.





Duke Gardens' education staff holds professional development workshops for K-12 teachers several times a year. Join our teacher email list to learn about opportunities as they're scheduled.
