Pan's Garden 25th Anniversary Celebration

On Saturday, November 23'd, Pan's Garden will come alive with activities that engage the public in understanding the critical importance of creating native habitats for butterflies, bees, and birds in the places where we live and work. The day will include lectures that explore the creation of the garden and its current initiatives. There will be family-friendly, educational activities throughout the day that create opportunities to engage with the mission of the garden.

In 1994, the Preservation Foundation embarked on a new project that was both forward­ thinking and a departure from earlier projects undertaken by the organization. Previous projects-saving Sea Gull Cottage, restoring Town Hall, and building Preservation Park-all centered around preserving the architectural heritage of Palm Beach. This project was designed to honor a different type of heritage, one that pre-dated the arrival of the first pioneers. Comprising a half acre one street north of Worth Avenue, a green space was constructed to showcase Florida's native plants and remind residents of the town's botanical heritage.

The tranquil green space was named Pan's Garden in honor of the bronze statue of Pan that welcomes visitors at the entrance on Hibiscus Avenue. Referencing the Ancient Greek god of shepherds, the statue was a fitting ambassador for a garden reminiscent of natural habitats that existed when Native Americans peacefully cohabited with the land. As a distinctive environmental concept featuring a wetlands and an uplands area, the mission of Pan's Garden-to protect and celebrate Florida's indigenous plants and the wildlife they support­ continues to be a guiding example of landscape stewardship.

Pan's Garden would not have been possible without the vision and generosity of the late Lydia Mann. As a former member of the Preservation Foundation's Executive Committee and a three-time Chairman of the annual Dinner Dance, her efforts were integral to many of the organization's successes. Mrs. Mann's vision to create "a place where people can find peace of mind and where children can find joy in living things" exemplifies the community-oriented goals of the Preservation Foundation. The 25th anniversary celebration of Pan's Garden has been organized to honor her memory and vision for the garden.
