Friends of the Domes

Supporting Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory

The Friends of the Domes is a support group whose purpose is to enhance projects and programs in Milwaukee’s Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory. Visit our booth at Cupcake Fest MKE to learn about what we do while your children participate in our free craft activity- making cupcake liner flowers.

The main purpose of the Friends of the Domes is to promote and support the Conservatory. We directly channel resources that make possible many of the educational, scientific and cultural programs held at this very special and unique community landmark. Our support complements but is separate from the support provided by Milwaukee County.

Friends of the Domes’ support includes:

  • Funding new plant acquisitions.
  • Facility enhancement such as building the education center and purchasing lobby furnishings.
  • Staffing special Domes sponsored events.
  • Sponsoring special educational programs.
  • Purchasing books and equipment.
  • Funding education related expenses for the Conservatory staff.

We are able to support these things through our fundraising events, memberships and donations.
