The Boerner Botanical Gardens building and offices are temporarily closed due to COVID-19 precautions.  All classes and events are currently postponed.  We will continue to monitor and update, and we apologize for any inconvenience. 

Friends of Boerner Botanical Gardens (FBBG) is the 36 year old self-funded non-profit organization supporting historic Boerner for decades, year round, with fun and educational classes and events for all ages. 

We continue to adjust our student/adult/family class and event schedule during the Covid-19 crisis….
postponing activities at the Gardens until prudent for all to attend.

Our gratitude to the many who are dedicated to supporting FBBG in our mission to preserve and sustain Boerner.

Please watch for our updates. Looking forward with optimism.
