These grants are designed to facilitate basic botanical research and increase our understanding of Nevada's native and naturalized flora. The research should cover some aspect of our flora from single species to whole communities or ecosystems. Research can include, but is not limited to, disciplines such as conservation, landscape analysis, ecology, biogeography, or taxonomy.

May Arboretum Fund Raiser

The May Arboretum Society is hosting a Party in the Garden for its well-known annual plant sale, the single largest fundraiser to support the Wilbur D. May  Arboretum. We’re inviting you to be a part of this exclusive and exciting inaugural event on the evening of Friday, June 1, 2012.

A large selection of plants and garden items will be available for purchase prior to the public sale on Saturday, June 2,  exclusively to ticket holders.  Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served and are included in the price of your ticket. There will also be a raffle and silent auction.

The highlight of the evening will be the opportunity to hear high desert garden advice from our special guests, recognized garden designers, consultants and authors, Scott Ogden and Lauren Springer Ogden. Copies of their books, Plant Driven Design and their recent release, Waterwise Plants for Sustainable Gardens: 200 Drought-Tolerant Choices for all Climates, will be available for purchase and the authors will be on hand to sign copies.

Tickets will be limited.  Information on ticket price and how to obtain them will be coming soon.  In the meantime people may visit our website at www.mayarboretumsociety.org or contact us at mayarboretumsociety@gmail.com for more information.

All proceeds benefit the Wilbur D. May Arboretum, located within Rancho San Rafael Park.
