For the past several years, the Garden has been purchasing parcels of land that adjoin the VBG, thanks to the generous donations of some of our members and benefactors. These land purchases are not intended for an expansion of the Garden, but are a buffer zone that will forever remain in its pristine state.
We have installed camera traps to photograph the wildlife living in these areas, and are overjoyed with the surprising results, several of which can be seen on other pages of this magazine. We have also hosted scientific surveys of these areas, to document the plants and other creatures living in these areas.
These land purchases will provide a safe haven for animals and plants, safe from the incursion of civilization, and allow these creatures to live their lives in a manner intended for them. Any donation that you can make to the Garden’s land purchase fund will be greatly appreciated and will benefit creatures like the ones seen in this magazine and their offspring
