As with many nonprofit boards, the Directors on the Woodlands Board represent a wide scope of talents and experience. We share an interest in working to make the Woodlands Garden enterprise endure in a meaningful way. We focus on a strategic process to preserve and solidify this community treasure for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations.
The Board understands that the gift of the property and the donated funds we receive are given in appreciation for the beauty of the natural world. We are so grateful for the support of our community, our city, and our donors.
There is always work to be done, but now is a critical time. We are establishing crucial aspects of the Garden’s operations. We sincerely hope you will join with us as we move ahead to preserve this beautiful and unique urban oasis.
