Mission Statement

The Mission of the Western Colorado Botanical Society is to promote responsible conservation of precious natural resources in Western Colorado by providing educational and recreational opportunities for visitors of all ages, while offering an aesthetic setting for cultural and community events.

Description

In 1986 the Western Colorado Botanical Garden (WCBG) was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Gardens are located on 15 acres leased from the City of Grand Junction. The greenhouse displays over 600 tropical plant species and the butterfly house many species of North American butterflies. The gift shop provides educational and gift items celebrating nature and plants, as well. Since the greenhouse and butterfly house were opened, we have welcomed over 20,000 visitors annually.

In addition to the greenhouse, several outdoor gardens and exhibits have been completed along with the Pomrenke Children's Library which focuses on science and environmental books for children and adults. In collaboration with community members and other non-profit organizations, classes and workshops for children and adults are offered in the Library.

The completed gardens and exhibits include the Mindy's Sensory Garden, Hemmerich Memorial Rose Garden, the Harmony In Color Garden, the North Channel Nature Trail, the Cactus and Succulent Garden, the Elizabeth Harris Amphitheater and the Children's Secret Garden.
