Volunteer Clean-up Day Postponed...

Dear Mead Botanical Garden Friends and Volunteers,


In the wake of Hurricane Irma, a storm of unprecedented size, it is our sincere hope that you and all your loved ones made it through with little or no damage.  The Garden wasn't so fortunate.  It remains temporarily closed due to unsafe conditions, especially numerous high level hanging branches that could come loose and fall to the ground at any time. The City and Mead staff are working toward reopening sections of the Garden.  

A Volunteer Clean-Up Day originally planned for Saturday morning, Oct. 1, has been postponed while the City crews continue their work.  We will keep you informed about reopening and special volunteer clean-up events through our Facebook page and website, www.meadgarden.org.

Some areas will likely be inaccessible for quite some time as the magnitude of damage is significant and varied greatly across the 47-acres. Trees are downed or damaged across the entire Garden. Water levels around Alice's Pond and Howell Creek are quite high.  Thankfully, the restored greenhouse and Legacy Garden was spared while tall pines crashed down all around just yards away.
