Building Public Gardens Committed to Demonstration and Education
DUE TO COVID-19, THE FIRST EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED! PLEASE CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS SITE FOR FURTHER UPDATES.
The Great Garden Series is held from May through August at the Durango Public Library and is a partnership between the Library, the Durango Botanic Gardens and the La Plata County Extension office. This event is FREE and open to the public.
I am sure it will come as no surprise, considering the pandemic surrounding the Covid-19 coronavirus, that we must cancel this conference until further notice. The stakes are too high, the information so fluid, we believe this is the only responsible action available to us. We ask for and appreciate your understanding.
We are looking at some dates in the late fall and will keep you posted. It is even possible we will need to consider dates in the first half of 2021.
THE EVENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO JUNE 27-28 AND WILL BE AT THE LA PLATA COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS. THIS DATE IS CONSIDERED TENTATIVE AND WILL ONLY BE HELD IF DETERMINED SAFE BY THE SAN JUAN COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT. THE BOTANIC GARDENS DO NOT MAKE THIS DETERMINATION AS WE ARE A PARTICIPANT ONLY. IF THE EVENT IS HELD, PLEASE JOIN US AS WE WILL ALL BE READY FOR A BIT OF SOCIALIZING!! FOR NOW - STAY HOME AND BE WELL.
FAIRY GARDENS! What fun to have little gnomes and fairies protecting your garden. Want to learn how to make a fairy garden? Join us at the La Plata County Extension Office on July 18th. Tell your friends (and your parents). We will provide the materials.
This event is still in the planning stages, so be sure to check back on a regular basis for the time and more information!
Tired of the cold weather? Looking forward to your colorful bulbs this spring? BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! The Botanical Society's annual fall bulb sale is scheduled for Saturday, October 17th, so mark your calendar. We will have over 8,000 bulbs this year - many varieties that are not available locally and ALL have been approved for Durango's challenging climate. Mike Smedley will give his entertaining talk before the sale doors open. More information will be posted as it is available. See you at the sale!
