The Disaster Response Center is a communication pathway for gardens with specific needs to match those needs with those gardens that have resources to share or lend.
Examples include short to medium term needs such as equipment, expertise, and staff. This platform cannot support extremely short term local coordination efforts. If you cannot access this submission system, please contact us directly and we will post the need for you: firstname.lastname@example.org, 610.708.3010
Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts:
Over the past few days, our Institutional Member, Naples Botanical Garden, has been communicating with the Bahamas National Trust (BNT), the country’s national park service. BNT manages over two million acres of land and sea throughout the country’s numerous islands, including two public gardens, the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve in Eleuthera, and The Retreat Garden in New Providence. Hurricane Dorian significantly impacted these rich resources of biodiversity.
Naples Botanical Garden is serving as a fiscal agent for gifts supporting BNT’s recovery and restoration. 100% of the funds donated using this link will be used for those efforts at BNT’s discretion.
