Out of an abundance of caution, and to limit the potential spread of COVID-19, the City of Fort Collins is acting on direction from state leadership and public health partners and has closed all cultural facilities. We are working with state and local officials to determine a plan for reopening and will communicate details as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this unprecedented time.

The Foothills Garden serves as an exceptionally naturalistic, native plant showcase garden with a uniquely "wild" feel. It aims to capture the feeling a visitor would have in our local foothills and to showcase and promote the use of regionally-appropriate, underused and novel native plants.
Plant communities represented in this space include: local foothills dry slopes, riparian areas, rock crevices, foothills shortgrass meadows, sagebrush steppe, loose pine woodlands and communities found more commonly in the foothills and similar of the west slope like dry mesas and badlands.
