Volunteer at the Mitchell Park Domes

Volunteering at The Domes

On behalf of the Friends of the Domes staff, our Board of Directors, and Milwaukee County Parks, we would like to say thank you for your unwavering support and generosity. We appreciate and respect each and every one of you. We miss you and cannot wait to see you back at the Domes again!

Volunteering at the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory requires nothing more than a minimal dedication of time, the willingness to make new friends, to learn about the Domes and meet / greet people from all over the world. Please consider volunteering in one or more of the following areas:

Special Events

The Friends of the Domes holds several events every year as fundraisers for the Domes:

  • Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Celebration - Last Friday in October
  • New Year's Eve (an annual family event) - December 31
  • Hearts Under Glass Valentine Event - February 14
  • Art in the Green (Two-day art festival in the Domes and the Greenhouse Annex) Weekend  April

These events simply couldn't happen without our vital volunteer base. The Domes wouldn't be the Domes without the fun and the funds that these events generate. Not only will you be providing a much-needed service to the Domes - you will have a wonderful time in the process.
