Our report card to you!

  • We delivered plant science and environmental learning to nearly 17,000 K > 12 students; many of whom would not have had these experiences without your support!
  • We welcomed 524 in-garden volunteers for our 4th consecutive year of supporting Boerner's garden staff.
  • Boerner was awarded Level II Accreditation from the Morton Register; a result of Boerner's broad plant collection, dedicated garden staff and our many community education initiatives!
  • We planned and facilitated 57 garden walks, adult education classes, family workshops, special events and our 4th consecutive Melinda Myers garden walk series.
  • Among those that we welcomed... Alverno College, Economics Wisconsin, Milwaukee Public Schools, Journey House, Victory Garden, Girl Scouts of America Leadership, Greater Milwaukee Committee's Teachtown Initiative, Green Tree Garden Club, Milwaukee Art Museum Garden Club and Souteastern Wisconsin plant societies.

2014 represents two significant milestones...

Thanking you in advance for supporting a new year of enjoyment and education at Boerner... named in recent years, the jewel of the Milwaukee County Park System!
