Butterfly Conservatory Campaign Donor Recognition at Assiniboine Park

The Assiniboine Park Conservatory will be closing on April 2, and Gardens Manitoba has received enquiries from our donors regarding past fundraising initiatives including the Butterfly Conservatory Campaign originally initiated by the Friends of the Conservatory.

In 2008, Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC) was founded to manage Assiniboine Park and its facilities, including the Conservatory. At that time, Friends of the Conservatory, now the Friends of Gardens Manitoba (Gardens Manitoba) opted to remain a separate organization.

In 2013, Gardens Manitoba made a gift of $400,000+ to APC and the Imagine a Place Campaign comprised of the funds raised by the Butterfly Conservatory Campaign. To recognize donors to the Butterfly Conservatory Campaign, a leather-bound donor book was created and was placed in the Conservatory. This book will remain a permanent legacy that will be moved to The Leaf in Canada’s Diversity Gardens upon its opening. Recognition signage in the name of “Gardens Manitoba” will also be displayed outdoors at The Leaf Plaza.

If you have any further questions, please contact or call 204 895 4560.
