Donations to the Garden


The Devonian Botanic Garden offers display gardens, natural areas and ecological preserves where visitors can interact with the natural environment. Your donation makes a difference by supporting conservation, education and services to the public. We invite you to support the Garden by making a contribution to the following areas:

Overall Garden Operations & Commemorative Donations

Donations support Garden activities including plant acquisitions, maintenance and upkeep of collections and special projects.

Commemorative donations

When you honour or remember someone with a donation, you send two-way support: to the honoree or family of the remembered one, and to the Garden.

For Garden Operations and Commemorative Gifts

If you would like to discuss donations to Garden Operations or Commemorative Donations, email Ruby Swanson, General Manager or call (780) 987-3054 ext. 2230

DBG Ecological Learning Centre 

The quiet phase of a capital campaign is underway for much-needed new facilities at the Devonian Botanic Garden.
