03.13.2020: A Message to our Garden Family

The health and safety of our guests, volunteers and staff is our highest priority. We are closely monitoring and evaluating the situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19), including guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, to ensure we are taking the necessary measures to protect your health and well-being.

As of now, the Garden is currently open to the public – our mission is to connect people with plants and provide a safe, peaceful place to refresh in nature during these stressful times. We ask, however, that if you are ill or have recently traveled to areas experiencing widespread transmission of COVID-19 that you plan your visit for another time. In keeping with CDC guidelines on social distancing and out of concern for our community, all Garden events, classes and programs throughout the rest of March have been canceled including Stitches & Stems.

If you are signed up for any Garden programs scheduled from March 13-31, program fees will be automatically refunded no later than April 2. Our Education Team will reach out directly about canceled programs to leaders, teachers and registrants on March 16, 2020.
