Gratitude for Another Wonderful Garden of Lights Season

Posted on 1-06-2022

More than 50,316 guests registered for tickets to attend during 22 days of the light show and more than 375 children and adults from 17 area nonprofits were invited to visit the event and enjoy a sweet treat for free thanks to a generous grant from Associated Bank.

Here are a few comments from guests:

“My parents who are 87 years old found the walk very beautiful and enjoyable. They followed the pathway easily.”

“Our family’s kids are all teenagers now. It’s hard to find ways to spend quality time with them. For three generations to enjoy themselves, it was a huge success. Seeing both the kids and Grandma happy was well worth admission prices.”

“It was great to hear our kids talk about each of the displays and what they saw. The display with the butterflies, chrysalises, and caterpillars really got them asking questions.”

Green Bay Botanical Garden wishes to express a heartfelt thank you to their volunteers, sponsors, donors, staff, and visitors who make this fundraising event successful each year.

70 volunteers worked 332 shifts for a total of 1,169 hours. Six volunteers shared 430 hours representing 37% of the total. In addition, they  welcomed 18 first-time volunteers this year!

They also want to express gratitude to the Events and Set-Up Teams for all their hard work throughout the entire season.

Each and every event night they ensured that the light show would run smoothly and handled any situation that popped up unexpectedly.

The staff of Green Bay Botanical Garden hopes you’ll join them this spring to see this year’s exhibit, Habitat! This exhibition explores the critical need for varied habitats, how interconnected and fragile they are, and what we can do to protect them. It also showcases the unique habitats throughout the gardens and landscapes of the Garden and of northeast Wisconsin.
