Conservation

  

Lauritzen Gardens is working to conserve the endangered plants of the Great Plains and to advance understanding and stewardship of the region's biological diversity. 

  

·         Plants are the foundation of life on Earth. People depend on plants for food, shelter, health, and happiness. 

·         Globally and locally, as many as 100,000 species of plants are in danger of becoming extinct.  If we lose these plants we lose the special role they play in the web of life. 

·         Some plants are imperiled because their habitat (the place where they grow) has been destroyed or degraded. Others are naturally rare because they grow in a very unique and limited habitat.  

·         Botanical gardens use horticulture—the science and art of growing plants—to help conserve endangered plants. 

  

A botanical garden contributes to community life in many ways—providing experiences of beauty, connection with nature, and opportunities for education. Through the conservation program at Lauritzen Gardens, we are also addressing the environmental challenges of our times. We are engaged in conservation activities on local, regional, and national fronts.
