re-opens with damaged display houses blocked. Fish in the Fern Room pond & the turtles living in the Fern Room have been spotted and are doing fine.
and the Chicago Park District launch the
"One Pane At A Time" campaign to raise
funds for the repairs at the Conservatory.
One Pane At A Time
The “One Pane At A Time” campaign allows the public to help rebuild the Garfield Park Conservatory’s damaged roofs by making a donation towards replacement panes of glass. As the Chicago Park District does not yet know the final cost of each pane of glass, these amounts are symbolic of purchasing panes for the Conservatory.
For a Better Chicago
For a Better Chicago’s campaign to match donations made to the Conservatory up to $10,000 has been completed! Thank you to everyone who participated and had their donation matched. The Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to For a Better Chicago for stepping up immediately after the storm to help the Conservatory, and for their generous matching donation.
