Western Colorado Botanical Gardens Gets Ready For Summer Season
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- As the temperatures warm up and the flowers start to bloom, the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens in Grand Junction has several events planned for summer visitors.
A concert will be held Saturday, May 18, at 5 p.m. at the Botanical Gardens Amphitheater to kick off the summer.
This will be the start of several summer concerts for the gardens, and as the summer approaches, workers at the botanical gardens are searching for extra assistance.
"We always need tour guides who have some knowledge of plants. If you like to just dig in the dirt and have some free time, come out and join us. It's a wonderful place to volunteer," explains Maggie Frey, the Garden Manager for the Gardens.
The Western Colorado Botanical Gardens host more than 600 tropical plants from around the world, and can be seen from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
