This special event is a last chance preview for members and visitors to see this unique collection before it’s closed until spring/summer  2022. Visitors to the last preview can visit with horticulturists about the collection and ask questions, as well as see a first public preview of architectural renderings of the new expanded Conservatory plans and hear about future Peace Garden plans. 

The event is casual, and guests are welcome to come and go anytime during the event. Visitors will be treated to light refreshments and beer and wine will be available for purchase. The event is free of charge, but gate fees still apply.

The Cacti and Succulent Collection was donated to the IPG in 2010 by longtime Minot resident, Don Vitko. The collection includes more than 5,000 unique species making it one of the largest unique species collections in the world. A visit to the Conservatory is a breathtaking experience year round, but the months of April, May and June offer visitors an array of daily blooms from these unique dryland plants.
