The Conservatory re-opens Saturday, March 9th!

The annual Spring Flower Bulb Show and the Conservatory are open to the public.  Many members, volunteers, visitors, and citizens have expressed concern for the impact of the Polar Vortex and have asked what they can do to support Hidden Lake Gardens and the Conservatory.  One way is to visit the Spring Flower Bulb Show for an introduction to spring flowers as well as a glimpse at the result of the cold temperatures on the Conservatory plants.  Secondly, a crowd funding account is now active to help fund the re-planting and recovery of the Tropical and Arid domes and the Temperate House.  Go to CrowdPower HLG Conservatory to make a gift toward our efforts of restoring the creative, beautiful, and cutting edge botanical oasis.
