Bob and I have supported the dream of the Humboldt Botanical Garden because it offers a hope for preservation and appreciation of our natural environment as well as an educational and spiritual opportunity to create more beauty and to save and catalog botanical species of interest and integrity. -Lynn Wells, Bob & Lynne Wells Pathway
Your generous gift helps to create a public display of documented native and exotic plants adapted to the local climate in a planned landscape that provides an educational, aesthetic, and tranquil experience for visitors. The garden works to advance global plant conservation efforts, horticultural, botanical, and ecological knowledge; propagation and dispersal of adapted plants; and community education and development. Sustainable practices protect and conserve resources and enhance habitat for the local creatures.
It takes nearly $150,000 each year to keep the garden open, growing and beautiful. The Humboldt Botanical Gardens Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. It survives by donations, sponsorships, grants, admissions and memberships. HBG receives no direct, regular government support.
Making in kind or financial donations, including HBG in your estate planning, volunteering, partnering in events or becoming a corporate sponsor are all important means of giving that further support the achievements of the Humboldt Botanical Garden.
