Green Ribbons

Time to remove the ribbons!

Thanks to all who supported the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens last year in our successful bid to renovate and expand the Greenhouse.

Special thanks to those of you who showed your support by tying green ribbons on your trees. Now, for the sake of the tree’s health, if you still have any ribbons up, we ask you to please remove all ribbons. This will prevent the ribbons from constricting growth or providing habitat for harmful bugs that may hide underneath.

Seed and Weed Garden Club

The Seed and Weed Garden Club meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 1:00 PM in the Cheyenne Botanic Garden Gathering Room unless otherwise noted. (more…)

Cheyenne Astronomical Society

View and learn about the stars at the Botanic Gardens gathering room. Meetings are open to the public and begin at 7:00 PM on Fridays, unless otherwise noted.
Star viewing occurs after each meeting when the skies are clear. Visit their web site here.

About the organization:
The Cheyenne Astronomical Society (CAS) was formed in December of 1986. The CAS is for people interested in astronomy who want to share their experiences and increase their knowledge about astronomy. Members are not required to own any equipment or to have any knowledge of astronomy. Your basic curiosity about astronomy is all you need. We generally hold a monthly gathering at Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, but during construction we will be meeting at the Primrose Retirement Community. Telescope viewing is also provided if the weather permits. Observing sessions for special occasions, such as meteor showers, comets or eclipses are also planned when the opportunity arises.

Drop by and get a bulb order form at the Laramie County Cooperative Extension Office at 310 West 19th Street, Suite 100, or e-mail for a fillable pdf version of the bulb order form.
Orders must be in by September 27th!
