The Silva Creek Botanical Garden is currently a project of the Gila Native Plant Society. For several years volunteers have been organized to maintain and care for the Garden. In 2014, we received a PNM Power Up Grant to construct an amphitheater/outdoor classroom, a kiosk, pad for outdoor sculptures and metal artwork that has been positioned around the historic (1906) railroad water tank that is in the Garden. The Garden is located on Virginia Street, 2 blocks north of US 180, between Hill St and State St, across from the Virginia Street Park.
In 2014, we also received a grant from the Wettarau Family Fund to bring in soil, make additional plantings of native plants and restore the central portion of the Garden.
