Our Master Plan
The Sawtooth Botanical Garden is distinguished through its mission to represent the five biomes of south-central Idaho. The master plan responds to this mission with five major gardens representing these biomes: Sagebrush Steppe garden, Lava Rock garden, Alpine garden, Montane garden and Riparian garden. Additionally, the Sawtooth Botanical Garden showcases native and cultivated plants that flourish at high elevation.
Each of these gardens will display plants from these biomes and their natural association to one another. Additionally, in keeping with the Sawtooth Botanical Gardens mission to reach out and educate, each of the smaller display areas within these garden areas will demonstrate how these plants can be used in landscape design in the Wood River Valley. The five distinct gardens surround and intermingle with numerous other improvements for educational programming and community use and enjoyment.
