Bonfils Stanton Lecture Series - 2015

Local Heroes: Rediscovering Our Own Backyards


We primeval forests felling, We the rivers stemming, vexing we and piercing deep the mines within, We the surface broad surveying, we the virgin soil upheaving, Pioneers! O pioneers!


Colorado men are we, From the peaks gigantic, from the great sierras and the high plateaus,

From the mine and from the gully, from the hunting trail we come, Pioneers! O pioneers!

~ Walt Whitman


With the support of the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and in line with the Gardens’ mission of connecting people with plants, we are excited to bring you our annual speakers’ series starting in June.


This year’s series celebrates remarkable home-grown local heroes and covers fascinating topics geared specifically for the Front Range gardener and nature lover. Discover the ins and outs of successful gardening in our unique environment from some of the country’s best experts! Topics include transforming your garden into a habitat for a variety of creatures with David Salman from the famed High Country Gardens and popular garden author Lauren Springer Ogden, as well as working with the challenges (and opportunities!) of gardening in our dry climate with the Gardens’ world-renowned horticulturalists. We are excited to welcome the inspiring nature photographer and publisher John Fielder as he takes us on a photographic journey along Colorado’s Yampa River to discover its history, beauty and the current efforts to keep this 200-mile river wild and strong.
