Adding a second digit to one’s age is a right of passage of sorts for a privately initiated public institution such as the Puerto Vallarta Botanical Garden, it’s evidence that the project has been truly embraced by its local community and destined to become a legacy for future generations. Ringing in such a milestone is a brilliant opportunity to not only celebrate with the local community, but to also welcome in supporters who have embraced this vision with us from near and from afar.
All are invited to a magical weekend on November 14th and 15th to experience the Puerto Vallarta Botanical Garden and learn from what others have to share when we will receive more of our professional colleagues with us than any other moment in our history. So far, plant researchers and botanical garden staff representing 12 different institutions have confirmed their participation. They will share their knowledge with
the public through guided hikes, open house experiences, special exhibits, and captivating talks by dynamic guest speakers. After a time to learn, we welcome you to celebrate as each evening a series of great local live music acts will take the stage. Event entry is included in regular garden admission (adolescents and adults 80 pesos, children 20 pesos).
If you’d like to be part of making this a truly unforgettable experience, please check in with the Garden’s Event Committee Vice Chair, Sue Keevil [email protected] for communications in English, or our biology intern, Cynthia Martinez Hernandez [email protected] for communications in Spanish. We’re still in need of volunteers (especially plant experts and/or aficionados for tours and our open house) as well as event sponsors.
