Last chance preview of Peace Garden’s cacti collection
DUNSEITH – The International Peace Garden will host a last chance preview of its Cacti & Succulent Collection June 12. This one-of-a-kind collection will be going off display for the next 11 months while the garden undertakes a major construction and renovation project that will require the temporary relocation of the collection.
The preview will be held from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Visitors can visit with horticulturists about the collection as well as see a first public preview of architectural renderings of the new expanded conservatory plans and hear about future Peace Garden plans.
The event is casual, and guests are welcome to come and go anytime during the event. Visitors will be treated to light refreshments, and beer and wine will be available for purchase. The event is free of charge, but gate fees still apply.
The Cacti & Succulent Collection was donated in 2010 by longtime Minot resident Don Vitko. The collection includes more than 5,000 unique species, making it one of the largest unique species collections in the world. The months of April, May and June offer visitors an array of daily blooms from these unique dryland plants.
