Durango Botanic Gardens would like to extend our sincere thanks to La Plata Cares and Local First for grant money that we received because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The gardens normally hold approximately seven to 10 in-person educational events during the gardening season. The virus prevented these events and made it very difficult for us to maintain payment of our administrative expenses. The CARES grant was a huge lifeline for the gardens.
Thank you to all who were involved in making these grants available to the community.
