Tarrant Coalition for Environmental Awareness: Fort Worth Botanic Garden Fees - Fort Worth

Jun 20 2018 - 7:00pm
Fort Worth Botanic Garden
3220 Botanic Garden Blvd Top of the Rose Garden, under shelter
Ft Worth , TX

Yesterday the Fort Worth Botanic Garden Task Force met to talk about Fee’s and options. We cannot rely on just coming together during these meetings to make a difference. If we don’t coordinate and put together an external plan going forward we stand to lose this fight. This external plan does not need to be a way to fund the gardens, this is more of a method for us all to get together to share information.

We need all the resources available about the gardens, so as we talk and share with others we are educated on how the gardens are used as well as the history. Let’s keep the momentum going. By working together we can let the Task Force know we are not just going to show up speak and walk away.
