Proceeds to benefit FVCC Student Scholarships and Programs

flowersEach spring since 2004, the Bibler Foundation has partnered with the Flathead Valley Community College Foundation to offer intimate tours of the Bibler Home and Gardens as a scholarship and program fundraiser for the college.  This year, the Bibler Home and Gardens Spring Stroll is scheduled for the second and third weekends in May.

The Bibler Home is filled with an exquisite collection of antiques, sculptures and heirloom Persian carpets and is surrounded by tens of thousands of tulips and daffodils accented with ponds, waterfalls, fountains, wooden foot bridges and other calming touches.  With the exception of privately arranged tours, the home and gardens are accessible only through the college Foundation tours during select weekends in May and during the last week in July when the gardens’ flowers are in full bloom.

This year’s Spring Stroll will take place May 11, 18 and 19 featuring guided one-and-one-half hour tours of the Bibler Home and Gardens at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.  The 3 p.m. tour on May 11 will be a special two-hour tour that will include the opportunity to view the complete Bibler rug collection in addition to the home and gardens.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $3 for children, except for the special 3 p.m. rug collection tour on May 11 which is $20 per person.
