William Lanier Hunt leads the establishment and chartering of the Botanical Garden Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides support to the Botanical Garden. Hunt served as the first president.
On April 10th, Ritchie Bell's birthday, the Garden opens the first nature trail of 88 acres, built by work-study students. It is the Garden's first public feature.
The Botanical Garden Foundation is incorporated.
