The Alpine Crevice and Native Garden
We are pleased to announce the completion of a new area of the garden! The Alpine Crevice and Native Garden is the only public crevice garden in Calgary. This project was created in partnership with the CRAGS - Calgary Rock & Alpine Garden Society who worked closely with our volunteers to complete this garden.
Some interesting facts: • Over 800 volunteer hours since work started in 2016 • 36 individuals volunteered • Over 225 alpine plants in the two crevice mounds • Almost 200 chinook zone Alberta native plants in the rock and gravel area surrounding the crevice garden
Luckily the garden was photographed a few days before the snow. There are still some protective fences around the garden to protect it for the winter but please stop by and take a look!
