About the Exhibit

The exhibition Habitat explores the critical need for varied habitats, how interconnected and fragile they are, and what we can do to protect them.  

Plants, animals, and other organisms have adapted to each other and their habitats over time, creating a delicate ecological balance. This balance faces many threats, including pollution, deforestation, and climate change, but humans can protect habitats for the future by learning to be better stewards of the environment.

This experience showcases the unique habitats throughout the gardens and landscapes of Green Bay Botanical Garden and of northeast Wisconsin.
