Accomplishments

 Friends of the University of Alberta Devonian Botanic Garden

Vision Statement:  Foster ongoing public enjoyment of this special garden.

Mission Statement:  Dedicated to raising funds for the Devonian Botanic Garden

  The Society is governed by a Board of Trustees of not less than ten or more than twenty four elected or appointed Voting Trustees. Annual donations have always been solicited from the membership and, along with other donations and grants, allocated for the support of a list of Garden projects presented annually by the Garden’s Director. Donation amounts have varied from year to year, but the membership has responded well to specific projects the Friends and DBG have undertaken over the years. The Friends have now donated more than 5 million dollars to the Devonian Botanic Garden.
