Celebrating 75 Years of Research, Conservation and Inspiration The dream for a botanical garden in Phoenix began with plantsman Gustaf Starck and philanthropist Gertrude Divine Webster. These individuals joined forces to create a garden that showcased and protected the beauty of the Sonoran Desert for future generations. Their vision came to life when the Desert Botanical Garden opened to the public in 1939.

Today, we celebrate the Garden’s 75th Anniversary with The Saguaro Initiative – an $18 million plan to invest in the Garden as a research institution, to take a stronger regional leadership role in conservation, and to create exciting new educational programming and exhibits that inform and inspire.

Nina Mason Pulliam Desert Research and Horticulture Center

The Saguaro Initiative

Over the years, the Garden grew and gained national recognition as a champion of plant conservation, a pioneer in the care and display of desert plants, an innovator in life-long education, and a respected leader in Sonoran Desert research. Through inspiring leadership and investments from our community the Garden has become, as Gertrude and Gustaf hoped, a compelling destination unlike any other.
