The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens felt Mother Nature’s wrath Tuesday night, as the Gardens were leveled by the hail storm that hit Cheyenne.

Director Shane Smith said although the hail itself was only marble sized, the long duration and force of the storm made it devastating. He added that it will take weeks toregroup and replant our beds. However, because of a shortage of both replacement plant and funds, we are gladly accepting donations to purchase plants to fill-in beds that were damaged by the hail.”
