Visitors to the State Botanical Garden of Georgia can now provide financial support to the free attraction by leaving cash or checks in donation boxes on the garden grounds.
Two outdoor donation boxes were installed recently, at the Alice H. Richards Children’s Garden, which opened almost a year ago, and at the head of the Orange Trail, near the garden’s main parking lot.
More than 3,500 people visited the children’s garden on its opening day, and overall visitation increased by 34 percent in 2019. Contributions to the box at that garden will go toward maintaining the 2.5 acre site.
Each year, thousands of hikers, walkers and runners take advantage of the five miles of trails on the garden property to improve their health, rejuvenate their spirits and experience the wonders of nature. Contributions to the trail head box will be used exclusively for the upkeep and expansion of the trail network at the State Botanical Garden.
The State Botanical Garden of Georgia is part of the University of Georgia and relies on state and private funding for its operation.
