The Tucson Botanical Gardens needs YOUR help to plant the final seed before January 31!
The Tucson Botanical Gardens has completed Phase I and II of an ambitious capital project BUT, we need YOUR help to plant the final seed before January 31!
Funds raised will allow us to complete Phase III, a new Visitor Center, Garden Gift Shop, Community Gathering Plaza and Historical Gallery.
Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous family foundation, every donation made will be matched 100% up to $300,000!
Why Now? Why So Soon? We have a real deadline!
This tight timeline will allow us to complete the Visitor Center by fall 2015 –just in time to open the Gardens’ newest traveling exhibit: Nature Connects – a nature- inspired LEGO sculpture exhibit. This exhibit will attract thousands of visitors from all over Arizona and beyond! Having the adequate space and facilities to accommodate the new visitors and make a great first impression will elevate everyone’s learning experience at the Tucson Botanical Gardens!
Plans and construction documents are complete. Permits need to be filed in January so construction can begin as early as April. Our timeline is tight, but we are focused and determined to grab onto this incredible opportunity to complete the Gardens Campus!
We’re building more than just four walls. We’re building a place of inspiration for all of Tucson!
The Tucson Botanical Gardens has completed Phase I and II of an ambitious capital project: The Alvernon Way Garden, a new ranch sign entry, a pedestrian pathway, a remodeled Cox Communications Butterfly & Orchid Pavilion and new water harvesting garden – A big Garden thanks to all who helped make that possible.
Help plant the final seed by helping us meet the match!
