Tribute to the Trees June 20

Update your calendars and devices now. One of Siskiyou County’s most long-standing events celebrates its 25th Anniversary on June 20, 2015. The Board of the Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens requests your company as the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra presents its annual Tribute to the Trees concert. The meadow will be decked out in style for this very special Silver Serenade and catered supper. Only 300 dinner tickets will be available, so be sure to reserve your spot as soon as they go on sale in the spring. Grab some glam and let your silver shine for this gala summer tradition.

The Gate opens at 3:30 PM with an al fresco supper served at 5:00 PM followed by a concert at 6:30 PM featuring the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra.

Tickets for the event may be purchased soon.

The Gardens Wish List

Each year, our horticulturalist, Cadace Miller, updates her Wish List of special specimen plants she would like to add to the Gardens for our visitors’ enjoyment and the enrichment of our plant collection.  The plants range from a tricolor dogwood in the McHenry Bed, to a yellow rhododendron at the entrance to the Spider Azalea Bed, to a dwarf hydrangea at the corner of the Children’s Garden.  Many other special plants (native and ornamental) and their proposed locations are included on the DBG 2014 Wish List.  Prices range from $10 to $100.

If you would like to purchase a special plant and donate it to the Gardens, please contact Candace at 530-261-1371. Candace will be glad to discuss the possibilities with you!
