The Connie Hansen Garden Conservancy
Open from Dawn to Dusk Daily
Free of Charge
Your donations keep the garden alive!
We welcome you to stroll through the garden any time each day from dawn to dusk. There are many enchanting pathways, some wheelchair accessible.
The Garden House is open every day of the week from 10am - 2pm.
At present, access to all grassy areas and many of our pathways is limited per Oregon Dept. of Agriculture regulations due to a pathogen that has targeted the Rhododendron and Azalea plantings. The pathogen is spread through contact with wet foliage when spores are present. Please observe all signage indicating no access and keep any pets in your vehicle or leashed under strict control on permitted pathways only

Concerning the restoration and future direction of the
Connie Hansen Garden.
The Connie Hansen Garden is facing an uncertain future of unprecedented challenge and very substantial change.
Now more than ever, we are asking for your support as we work with the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture to meet their requirements to contain and ultimately eradicate the pathogen (Phytophthora ramorum) that has infected our beautiful garden and some of its most venerable and treasured plantings.
The work required to restore the Garden will take many months, most probably years, of skilled and volunteer labor and require a dedicated workforce and a huge investment of time and money.
As an all-volunteer organization of mostly retired people, our resources are limited and dependent upon the public to keep the operation solvent.
PLEASE HELP RESTORE THE GARDEN with your contribution of time or money. Click here for more information on how you can contribute to the CHG.
For more information about how the pathogen is affecting the CHG, here is a link to an excellent article by Lori Tobias for the OregonLive website.
