Building Public Gardens Committed to Demonstration and Education
IT'S SPRING AND THE SNOW IS FINALLY MELTING!! We will be opening up the Demonstration Garden and the new Arboreta starting April 6th. There will be a Docent on Duty at the gardens, located off the river trail behind the Durango Public Library, starting at 8:30 am until 10:00 am EVERY SATURDAY (weather permitting). If you are new to Durango, love gardening and want new ideas or just want to see the new Arboreta, our Docent will be available to answer all your questions and, if you like, give you a tour. Drop by and see us!
The Great Garden Series is a joint project between the Durango Public Library, the Durango Botanical Society and the La Plata County Extension Office. There are 5 classes on various topics scheduled throughout the summer and all of these classes are free! See the schedule listed below for the dates, topics and speakers.
Please join us as we work on the Demonstration Garden and the new Arboreta, EVERY SATURDAY FROM MAY THROUGH SEPTEMBER (weather permitting). Starting at 9:00 am, we will be pulling weeds and adding new plantings. We will be planting new perennials on May 4th and the annuals on May 11th. We love to have more hands in the dirt. A great way to relax and meet new friends.
The Durango Botanical Society is having a garage sale. We will have all sorts of great items in good condition for you to browse and buy. All profits and/or donations will go to maintain and support the Botanic Gardens, including the Demonstration Garden, the Crevice Garden Along the Trail, the Gabbro Miniature Tree Garden, and the new Arboreta, which are viewed by thousands of people every year. After shopping, feel free to stroll through the new Arboreta and see all the new wonders, including the great new artwork.
Good news for Durango Botanical Society members and friends! Gardens on Tour is back for 2019! Mark your calendars for June 22, 2019 for the "Kick Ash" Garden Tour, honoring our brave firefighters and celebrating the rebirth of our gardens.
