As Selby Gardens looks towards the future, you are a critical partner.


With world-class living and preserved plant research collections; international, national, and local recognition for our programs and outreach; and 45 acres of bayfront sanctuaries on Sarasota bay, Selby Gardens is a botanical garden unlike any other.

Will you support our mission to provide bayfront sanctuaries connecting people with air plants of the world, native nature, and our regional history?

With you, others like you, and the vision of our founders, Selby Gardens has been able to:

• Bolster our living and preserved plant collections and the global contributions we make to the field of plant research
• Showcase major exhibitions featuring groundbreaking, interdisciplinary fine art and horticultural displays
• Offer schools opportunity to extend their classrooms outdoors with standards-aligned guided programs for K-12 school groups in natural sciences, archaeology and history
• Deepen the relationship between people and nature with understanding how biodiverse eco-systems are inter-connected and dependent on one another

Your support this holiday season is critical to Selby Gardens’ future and our ongoing research, conservation, and education efforts.
