Durango BOtanic Gardens
Building Public Gardens Committed to Inspiration, Demonstration and Education
2020 Event Calendar
Every year the Durango Botanical Society (DBS) sponsors several educational events. There will be a minimal charge for some of these events and others will be at no charge.
La Plata Extension and DBS have both joined with the Durango Library to offer the 'Great Garden Series'. A compilation of classes that will be free to the public throughout the summer. Check the calendar for these events.
Every Saturday morning from May through September, garden maintenance is performed in both the Demonstration Garden and the Arboreta. Want to experience that wonderful smell of freshly turned earth? Come and join us at 9:00 am during May and 8:00 am from June through September for maintenance and installing new plantings.
Don't want to get your hands dirty? Feel free to come and talk with a Docent who can give you a tour or answer your gardening questions. Visit at any time on your own as the flowers in bloom change with the seasons. There is a booklet inside the library you may use on a self-guided tour of the Arboreta. Additional, for both the Arboreta AND the Demonstration Garden, use your cell phone and connect to http://dubg.oncell.com for a detailed description the all the plants in the gardens.
