Continuing a Legacy

Alta Vista Botanical Gardens (AVBG) has announced its new officers for the upcoming year: Ron Holloway (President), Art Logan (Vice President), John Voss (Secretary), and Ken Bouchard (Treasurer). The garden also recognized the work of Past President Bryan Morse, whose efforts helped create this special gathering place for the Vista community. Bryan’s work over the past six years includes the ceremonial garden and pond, the upper jungle creek and pond, placement of many sculptures throughout the garden, as well as maintaining and improving various trails and other garden areas. The new officers and board members are committed to maintaining and expanding upon Bryan’s work.

AVBG takes a unique approach in interpreting what a botanical garden can become by harmoniously bringing together people, nature, and art. While holding true to the traditional scientific approach to botanical gardens, AVBG also serves as an interactive, living classroom for students and adults alike. The garden is home to a wide variety of beautiful, rare plants as well as artwork created by talented area artists, trail systems, butterflies and other wildlife, and multipurpose platforms for hosting events. AVBG welcomes any community members who wish to volunteer to help maintain and grow the garden. Learn more at
