Our renovation was made possible by funding from SSC and other donors and by project partner Facilities & Services. We’d love your support for additional improvements, which include a bridge and early-blooming plants. For fundraising, we partnered with CCDC. Joining us is the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation, who match your dollar with three more dollars.

Garden Improvement Plans: Your gift goes towards garden improvements that benefit both human and wildlife visitors. Plans are to build a boardwalk bridge so people can easily move from one side of the garden to the other. We’ll also have an interpretive sign that educates campus and community. Additionally, early-blooming plants will be established to provide welcome nourishment for birds and pollinators returning after winter.
