We have temporarily closed all Denver Botanic Gardens locations. Denver Botanic Gardens’ response to COVID-19
Living in Denver, far from any of the world’s oceans, it’s easy to feel disconnected from them. Yet what we do here impacts what happens thousands of miles away.
In an effort to link we the landlocked with our oceans, the Garden Club of Denver will host Dr. David Guggenheim at Denver Botanic Gardens. The ocean explorer and founder of Ocean Doctor – a nonprofit dedicated to advancing conservation of the oceans through scientific research, education and community engagement – will speak on “Lessons from the Deep: What the Oceans Are Telling Us – and Why It Matters” at Denver Botanic Gardens on Tuesday, March 10, 2020. This free lecture, open to the public, will begin with a reception and light refreshments at 5 p.m., followed by the program at 5:30.
Garden Club of Denver and Denver Botanic Gardens share a commitment to water stewardship, encouraging water-efficient horticultural and agricultural practices. Denver Botanic Gardens co-runs the One World One Water Center (OWOW) with Metropolitan State University of Denver. Gardens members receive a discount on the online water studies certificate.
