2022 Annual Appeal
Please consider continuing your support with a charitable contribution to the West Virginia Botanic Garden before December 31, 2022. Your tax-deductible gift is vital to creating learning experiences, inspiring families, and improving the well-being of the community through the natural environment and culturally enriching experiences.
A commonly heard sentiment from visitors lately is that they are amazed by the difference in the Garden today compared to their last visit some years ago. It is important to take a moment to appreciate the momentum of the organizational mission. This energy is vital as we continue to build upon the Master Plan and programming. In 2022, we opened the Children’s Adventure Garden and The Terrace at Tibbs Run. These new amenities are so well received by the community, exceeding everyone’s expectations already.
These incredible site developments have filled everyone who cherishes this place with excitement over the past few seasons, but they have not been the only improvements taking place. Keeping with our mission, we have reached more youth with our educational programs than ever before. The community has also responded well to our wellness programs, which continue to increase in popularity. What’s more, we’ve been able to add to the region’s economy through increased tourism and work opportunities. Our new pedestrian traffic monitors indicate that some areas of the Garden have been visited over 100,000 times just during the summer season.
You have made all of this possible through your generous support. Plans for more great improvements are being made for 2023 and beyond, including a new Visitors Center, paving, expanded irrigation, and of course, more plants!
