Santa Fe Botanical Garden

Santa Fe Botanical Garden Celebrate, cultivate and conserve the rich botanical heritage and biodiversity of our region.

The Santa Fe Botanical Garden is an educational resource that connects people with nature and fosters respect and enjoyment of plants and conservation. Through exploration of our two sites, fun and innovative programs, volunteerism, and education, we provide opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to be inspired by and learn from nature.

Mission: The Santa Fe Botanical Garden celebrates, cultivates and conserves the rich botanical heritage and biodiversity of our region. In partnership with nature, we demonstrate our commitment through education, community service, presentation of the arts, and the sustainable management of our nature preserve and public garden. The Santa Fe Botanical Garden has two locations - a Botanical Garden at Museum Hill in Santa Fe, and the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve in La Cienega.

What is the climate of Santa Fe?

We are so grateful for all of this moisture! 🌧☔️

While many believe Santa Fe is a high desert, we actually get too much precipitation to be classified as a desert climate. Santa Fe is designated as a semi-arid steppe climate with cold winters by the Köppen Climate Classification System. Deserts receive less than 10" of precipitation annually, and steppes receive 10-20" of precipitation. Santa Fe, on average, receives about 14" annually.

Other parts of New Mexico to the south, including Albuquerque, are high desert. What a difference 50 miles makes!
