Local Artist Tony Angell to speak at KBGF Annual Meeting


Renowned sculptor, author, illustrator, and educator Tony Angell will give an illustrated talk and sign books at KBGF’s annual meeting. Tony Angell is a rock star crowd pleaser, regularly drawing overflow crowds and selling out books on hand. His sculpture “Surf Birds” is installed at the front of KBG’s new Native Plant Demonstration Garden and will be on display through August 2014. In his talk, Tony will address “Birds and Art in the Garden,” two of his favorite subjects.
Please help us get the word out about this special event. All are invited to join!

Executive Director’s Year End Appeal

As the new Executive Director of the Kruckeberg Botanic Garden Foundation, I have been overwhelmed by the dedication of our staff, volunteers, board, and donors to the mission of the KBGF: sustaining the Kruckeberg legacy by demonstrating how plants enrich our lives and our community.

I encourage you to give to KBGF as part of your year-end giving this year. Every dollar helps us fulfill this mission. I thank the dedicated donors and volunteers who help us every day to reach these goals. We couldn’t do it without you!
