Cancellation of Colorado Water Garden Society Upcoming Meeting/Event

With the decision made by the City and County of Denver on Monday, March 23rd to “stay at home” and only “essential business” allowed to operate, the Colorado Water Garden Society has made the decision to cancel our “Get Wet” event scheduled for Thursday, April 9th to take place in Gates Hall located within the Denver Botanic Gardens.

We will make a decision as to whether or not we will reschedule this meeting once concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic have significantly decreased. Also, rescheduling is dependent on the availability of facilities at the Denver Botanic Gardens.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this challenging time.
