Mission & Vision



Our Mission
The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens is a living museum dedicated to advancing appreciation for and knowledge of plant life and its connection to people and cultures through its documented living plant collection, historic conservatory, education, research and exhibits. 


Our Vision
We are moving toward a future where the lives of people of all ages are enriched by living plants of all kinds, and they are committed to sustaining the wonders of Earth’s natural systems to ensure diverse plant life for future generations.


Strategic Intent
The Botanical Gardens will take its rightful place as an essential community cultural institution -- the horticultural hub of Western New York, perceived by all as the primary reference center for everything botanical. Through a broad array of attractions, programs and services, we will be relevant to the interests and lives of an ever-expanding audience.
