Established in 1873, the Beal Botanical Garden is the oldest university botanical garden in the U.S. and illuminates the interconnectedness between people, plants, and place. Situated in the heart of Michigan State University's campus along the Red Cedar River, this lovely natural landscape is perfect for collaborative programming to advance research, teaching, wellbeing, and public engagement.

Beal Botanical Garden is listed on the Michigan State Register of Historic Places and is part of the Provost’s Office at MSU, one of several units comprising the University Arts and Collections group
