Date: Thursday, August 9

Time: 8:45 a.m.
Place: Meet at parking lot on left side of Main Street, Frisco just before Exit 201 on I-70

Program: Excursion – Mayflower Gulch Trail

The Mayflower Gulch Trail is a direct and relatively easy trail into a basin surrounded by sawtooth peaks.  From the parking area, we will start hiking up a dirt road through a forest and along a creek and riparian area.  After about 1 mi, we will break out of the trees, cross the creek, and will be situated at an old abandoned mining town.  There are various ruins that we can explore and further hiking, depending on the stamina of the group. The views are tremendous.


You will need a hat, water, suntan lotion, and a snack (perhaps) for the hike.

We suggest that a pot luck lunch, once we return to the cars, would be fun. If you don’t want to hike, come for the ride, views and camaraderie!


Directions:  From Frisco take I-70 W to 91 S. towards Leadville.  Pass Copper Mountain Ski Resort and when you are driving alongside the Climax Molybdenum active mining area (to the right), look for the trailhead and parking area off to the left.


Those interested in participating in this trip should contact Elizabeth Wickert at AJECWickert@gmail.com or 970-453-4778.

Denver Botanic Gardens’ School of Botanical Art & Illustration presents its annual juried exhibition highlighting students’ best achievements in a variety of media.

These works build upon a well-established tradition of portraying plants for scientific documentation and to represent the beauty of the natural world. Invisible Links explores the complex and often hidden interdependent relationships between plants and other organisms. From pollinators to parasites, experience the invisible influence plants wield over the lives of other creatures.

2017 Garden Club Event Photos

A Day Trip to Cherokee Ranch & Castle, July 14, 2017 was enjoyed by a group of Summit County Garden Club members led by Liz Wickert.   A beautiful summer day enhanced our view, gourmet sundeck lunch and tour of the castle and grounds.   This is a unique treasure that lends itself to a fun outing within a reasonable drive from Summit County!








Cooking Workshop, Asian "Parcels" by Liz Wickert.  Members learned how to prepare 3 delicious appetizers in Liz's kitchen on May 11th.   Great fun was had by

all and everyone went home with the recipes.   Thanks so much, Liz, for opening your home and sharing your cooking expertise with club members!

Denver Botanic Gardens Chihuly Glass Exhibit













































We try to educate our members and the community about gardening in Summit County and provide a social setting for informational exchanges to share the beauty of gardening with others.

There's lots going on in our Club and room for many to be involved. It's surprising how much we accomplish in our short Summit summers.
