Support the Garden

Each year at this time, The Botanic Garden encourages supporters to make a donation to The Garden to help with operating expenses, and this appeal is especially important this year. The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to cancel most of our revenue-generating activities and events, resulting in a loss of over 50% of our operating revenue. COVID may have resulted in reduced revenues, but The Garden was a welcome haven of beauty, peace, and safe family recreation all season long. Your donation now will count more than ever and we hope you will give generously. It’s a wonderful investment in the future.

This is your community. This is your garden.

Located in the heart of Traverse City on the beautiful grounds of Historic Barns Park.

The Botanic Garden is a year-round sanctuary of environmental preservation, recreation and education. Its 25 acres nurtures the soul, enlivens our history and promotes Michigan’s natural beauty. With an emphasis on plant species native to northwest Michigan, it creates and enhances habitats for various forms of wildlife.

As a place of refreshment and solace, The Botanic Garden’s unique and original design strives to inform and inspire. After over a decade of careful planning and preparation, the garden is coming alive.

We'd love to hear from you!
