Cuba Center is doing to conserve them. $12 per person. A package price of $15 includes a one-hour guided garden tour and one-hour Natural Lands Tour. Call 302.239.8807 or fill out our contact form to arrange your tour.

Docents are located throughout the gardens to provide information and answer questions.
