Grab a crayon and show us your artistic talents! 🖍️

Stop by our 25th birthday mural located on the lower level of the Fischer Visitor Center during your next visit to the Garden and add a little color. Visitors of all ages are welcome to help!

The mural will be on display for everyone to see throughout WPS Garden of Lights later this year.

“Like a tree that changes and matures, the character of the Garden is constantly evolving. Once nothing more than the seed of an idea in the minds of a few visionaries, the Garden has spread its roots, grown and branched out. Today it is blossoming and has truly become a magical place that welcomes everyone.”

—A Place for Everyone: The History of Green Bay Botanical Garden, Lee Somerville, 2016

All year long we’ll reminisce about the past and our journey to today, and also look to the future, from throwback articles, photos and poems to monthly giveaways, an appreciation event in June and a community birthday party in September.

Whether you’re a founder, member, volunteer, donor, sponsor, corporate partner or visitor, you’ve made it possible for us to grow together all these years and continue our mission to connect people with plants.
