Wild Colorado

Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
– JOHN MUIR

With the support of the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and in line with the Gardens’ mission of connecting people with plants, the Gardens is excited to bring you a series designed to push the boundaries of gardens as art and unveil a better understanding of our Wild Colorado.

Through our 2019 series, we dive into the scenery, talent and passion of the wonderfully diverse state of Colorado. From rolling hills of native flora to the passions of local artists we dissect our understanding of the world around us through thoughtful connections with art, deeper understanding of wildflower ecosystems and unique analysis of landscape design. Whether you join us in a meadow garden tour with Lauren Springer or view a film about Piet Oudolf we know you will find a way to be inspired by the beauty that surrounds us.

In today’s world of immediate gratification and indefinite expectations we challenge participants to explore the theme of temporary artistry. The fleeting elegance of something hand-made, one-of- a-kind and temporary inspires and unburdens the art of creating beauty. Through lectures, workshops, trips and tours we hope this is the year you see our Wild Colorado in a whole new light.

Here is the 2019 Bonfils-Stanton Series brochure featuring all of the lectures, workshops, trips and tours.
