The health and safety of the community, our members, volunteers and staff is of the utmost importance to us. Therefore, the Botanical Gardens was forced to close on March 17, 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis. However, spring is one of the busiest times of year for the Botanical Gardens and we suffered a significant loss in revenue during this crisis. The Botanical Gardens relies almost exclusively on admissions, membership, special events, foundation support and charitable contributions to care for the 22,000+ plant collection, maintain the historic building, offer impactful and free programming for students and provide compensation for our dedicated employees. Please help us continue our mission and recover lost revenue by supporting the Botanical Gardens with a foundation gift towards the general operations.
