DBS, Coronavirus Pandemic, and Upcoming Events

A message from John Anderson, president, Durango Botanical Society...

Following the guidance of our public health agencies, The Durango Botanical Society (DBS) recognizes the need to increase social distancing at the present time.  This may include the postponement or cancellation of a variety of upcoming DBS events. Those decisions will continue to be guided by public health recommendations. As many of you know, both the Durango Public Library and the Recreation Center are closed at least until May 10.

Accordingly, we have found it necessary to cancel a number of upcoming events, including "Astounding Plants of the Mediterranean," originally scheduled for March 26 and “Pollinators in the Garden," originally scheduled for April 18.  We will abide by the City of Durango guidance and policies regarding events at these locations. 

Please check our web site often at for updates that will be shown on the events tab at our web site. If you are currently registered for scheduled events you will receive an e-mail specific to the event as we know more about changes to the City of Durango policy for public gatherings at these or other locations.

Remember: The Durango Botanic Gardens are open year around to enjoy throughout this pandemic.  Thank you for your support as we continue our work of creating public gardens in the city of Durango.

John Anderson, President, Durango Botanical Society
