Durango BOtanical Society
Building Public Gardens Committed to Demonstration and Education
2019 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 new 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.
The 'Budding Authors' series is in partnership with the CSU La Plata County Extension Office. We have gathered poems, fun and educational articles about gardening in the Durango area along with pictures to assemble a book that will be available to the public. This will take a few months but stay tuned for more information on the publishing date.
