The Conservatory is 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.  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.  The Tropical Dome remains closed for further evaluation.  The Bonsai Courtyard opens for the gardening season on April 28, 2019.
