The New Gardens

The Denver Botanic Garden dedicated three new gardens in July 2016—the Steppe Garden, the relocated All-American Select Garden, and the expanded Sensory Garden with an enhanced focus on horticultural therapy. Emmanuel Didier, Principal of Didier Design Studio, will provide a tour of these enchanting new spaces.

The New Building The Center for Science, Art and Education (CSAE) will complete the master plan for Denver

Botanic Garden. Now in the concept design stage, this building will provide state-ofthe-art work space for the departments of Art & Exhibits, Science & Research, and Education as well as gallery, auditorium and library resources. Principal David Daniel of Davis Partnership Architects will present the proposed design. DBG opens to the public at 9 a.m. so RMHUC members will have exclusive access to the gardens for the first hour of the event. Attendees are welcome to stay in the gardens after the tour to explore the grounds or stop at the Offshoots Café.
