Garden benchConsider dedicating a bench at the Garden, Butterfly House, or Shaw Nature Reserve in memory or in honor of a loved one. Bench dedications are unique opportunities. Each existing bench or location for a new bench is selected in partnership with the family or organization making the dedication. Each dedication is personalized through a plaque and creates a personal resting space for guests to reflect and remember.

Commemorative bench dedications are available with a gift of $30,000 or more, depending on the material and location of the bench.

To discuss available benches and begin the dedication process, please contact our Commemorative Gift Program at or (314) 577-5180.
