The Gala at the Gardens was held on September 30, 2016 and a special live auction, the Mission Moment took place. The Mission Moment supports the creation of new exhibits in greenhouses 2&3 and raised over $20,000 that night.
When the Erie County construction project is complete, the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens Society, Inc. will immediately begin work to install two new exhibits in the renovated greenhouses. The Aquatic Garden will include a new water feature, refurbished koi pond, a new bridge over the koi pond and many plants native to Asia. The Asian Rainforest will feature a decorative tea house, a moon gate, a redesigned waterfall, orchids, bamboo, a bonsai collection and more. Above is a preview of what the exhibits will look like.
The Society has raised a total of $205,000 of the $275,000 needed to complete these exhibits, but to ensure the best possible visitor experience must reach their fundraising goal by the end of 2016 to complete the work. The Society’s Board, staff and administration are committed to making this happen. Help us achieve our goal and donate by clicking the link below.
