Monk Botanical Gardens is a vital resource to our community; it is the only botanical garden in North Central Wisconsin, hosts over 60,000 visitors a year, and is the location of Wausau’s first and only nature-based preschool.
We’ve seen the Gardens' impact on lives during everyday moments, from senior home residents growing food and flowers in our accessible raised beds to a 3- year-old child explaining the delicacy of a magnolia bud. The Gardens give everyone hands-on opportunities to learn about, appreciate, and develop a lifelong connection to the natural world.
Know that every dollar you donate will be matched, doubling its impact.
