Botanical Garden director Rundberg moves to City Club job

Julia RundbergJulia Rundberg, the executive director of the Idaho Botanical Garden, is leaving the garden to become the manager of the City Club March 3.

Rundberg has spent seven years at the Botanical Garden and said she hopes to continue working with the garden as a volunteer. She said during that time the nonprofit Botanical Garden finished a strategic plan and tripled its membership. It now has a $1.2 million operating budget and sees 140,000 visitors a year.

“It’s a really time-consuming job,” she said. “It was 24/7. You fundraise every dollar.”

The Botanical Garden will likely carry out a national search for Rundberg’s successor. Her new position managing the day-to-day operations of the City Club will be part-time, at least at first, as that organization undergoes a strategic planning process.

The City Club sponsors lunch forums, dinners and occasional tours.
