In light of recent developments and recommendations to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Quad City Botanical Center is closed. This includes all events, classes and programs.

Throughout our closure, we will continue to share content that furthers our mission of bringing people and plants together in fun and meaningful ways on Facebook and our website.

We will continue to follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and local sources before determining a date to reopen our gardens. Staff will be working either on site or remotely.

We thank you for your continued patience and understanding during this uncertain time and look forward to welcoming you back to the gardens soon.
