Crested Butte
Botanic Gardens

Our Mission

To cultivate the connection between people and the natural world and promote the conservation of our environment.

The Vision

Crested Butte Botanic Garden was established as a 501(c)(3) in 2022. The botanical garden in Gunnison County Colorado will provide a unique opportunity for people to connect with plants and nature in a high altitude setting. We aim to inspire people of all ages and abilities to appreciate and care for the natural world.

We will engage the community and visitors with educational opportunities, therapeutic horticulture, research and conservation activities, as well as provide gathering spaces for various programs and events.

The gardens will be home to high alpine plant collections, flowering displays and demonstration gardens. We will demonstrate sustainability through gardening practices, green infrastructure, water conservation and innovative growing techniques.

Our Values​

We embrace the values of sustainability, conservation, accessibility and inclusivity. The gardens will adhere to the highest standards across all aspects of the organization and will cultivate programming and activities that foster these values in all our endeavors.

Shaping the future of the Crested Butte Botanic Gardens

We are currently working to secure our forever location. While we are developing our site plans we will engage the public with educational programs and collaboration projects within our community.

Your tax free donations will help support our local projects and programs. 

Three Ladies Native Garden Project

We are excited to partner with the town of Crested Butte in  August of 2023. We will install an educational native display garden at the Three Sisters Park on Butte Ave. The garden display will demonstrate the importance of native plants for the environment and sustainability. This garden will also promote awareness of Crested Butte Botanic Gardens and provide an example of the offerings that the CBBG will provide on a larger scale in our future location.
