What is "Zoo Horticulture"? A simple description might be "gardening and landscaping activities that occur in a Zoo or Aquarium setting." But there is so much more!


AZH welcomes individuals, institutions, organizations, students and commercial suppliers who share our dedication to the enhancement of Zoos, Zoological Parks and Aquariums through horticulture.


The AZH annual conference provides members an opportunity to share information, network, attend paper sessions and see other institutions.

AZH is a non-profit membership organization
dedicated to the advancement of horticulture in zoos, zoological parks, botanic gardens, and aquariums.

One of the key elements of developing natural habitat exhibits is a holistic approach to the design of exhibits. The zoo horticulturist should be involved in every phase of exhibit design. From the beginning stages of guiding plant selection and assuring that plant needs are met, through to the project’s conclusion and maintenance, the zoo horticulturist is an important part of the design team.
