Traveling to Tucson in early spring is never a bad idea, but it was a doubly enjoyable visit as Terra and our team - DesignGroup, Getz Design, EcoBotanic Design, and Greg Carlson Engineering - wrapped up the Master Plan with a presentation to Board, staff, and friends of Tucson Botanical Garden in April.  Visionary elements of the Master Plan include an iconic Butterfly and Orchid Conservatory and Pollinator Garden, relocated Café amidst a new culinary garden, improved visitor arrival experience, a destination family garden, and a major Event and Education Center with expanded parking.  The Garden is gearing up for a rigorous capital campaign to fund the Master Plan’s first phase, which will breathe new life into the western portion of the Garden through the addition of the Conservatory, Café and new visitor arrival and wayfinding components.
