Denver Botanic Gardens
Started in 1951 and located in the middle of the Mile High City, Denver Botanic Gardens was one of the first gardens in the country to emphasize native plants and to champion environmentally responsible practices, such as water conservation and biological control of pests.
Denver Botanic Gardens offers spectacular plant displays, unlimited opportunities for lifelong learning and research that helps preserve Colorado's precious natural resources. Denver Botanic Gardens features over 15,000 plant taxa, including 98 of the Project BudBurst target species.
By participating in BudBurst at the Gardens, staff, volunteers, and botanic garden visitors are learning more about how plants respond to changes in their environments so that they can be conserved for future generations to enjoy.
