Building Public Gardens Committed to Demonstration and Education

Many Ways to Donate, To Help Our Gardens Grow!

Your Donation helps to beautify Durango! See the donation form below for a variety of ways to help us grow and be a part of something beautiful and lasting, part of your legacy! Consider donating in the names of your children, grandchildren, or other important people in your life. All donations and monies go toward maintaining our gardens and supporting our horticultural education efforts.

Becoming a member of our Society is one way to help our mission. Donations are tax deductible and very much appreciated. Remember if your employer matches your donation, any donation made over $35.00 includes a free membership! When you walk down the trail or visit the library you can say I helped do that!

Garden Path Engraved Flagstones

Generously sized flagstones, with your name, your business, or a quotation that inspires you can be enscribed on these large stones that provide a path through the Demonstration Garden. These stones are a wonderful opportunity to leave a truly lasting legacy or memorial. Price for an enscribed flagstone is $1500. You choose what goes on the stone.

"Bookcase" Stones

What better way to marry our library and our hardscaping than

with these bookcace stones resting on steel shelves. Benefactors may enscribe

their names, their company names, or the names of loved ones on these

beautiful, truly long-last "books." Celebrate your love of books and gardens

at the same time. These are very popular and we purchased a number of them

years ago but we are starting to see supplies dwindle... so now is a good time

to act. Still available at $300 per stone. 


Help "Grow" the New Arboreta Gardens: Sponsor Trees, Shrubs, and Art

We are now developing the new gardens on the north side of the Library called The Arboreta. There remain many opportunities to support this major new garden effort by purchasing a tree for the garden and we are now fundraising in preparation for additional plantings. Please contact us at 970-888-4841 or email us at durangobotanical@gmail.com for pricing and availability of trees. 

If you interests lean more toward art you can also purchase one of our beautiful decorative metal panels. Our metalsmith will produce an image on the panel from your design or we can put you in touch with an artist who has designed several of these panels already. Decorative metal panels, seen pictured below, with your name attributed will cost $2500.  You can also purchase a metal plaque with your name on it as a contributor to the gardens for $1,000. Learn about the Arboretum
