Although you can’t come to the Domes right now, the Friends of the Domes has created these pages to bring the Domes to you.

Each week we will bring you new educational videos, family friendly nature-related activities, along with a little horticultural humor.

We hope you are all doing well and enjoying some family time. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Mitchell Park Domes in the near future. Visit this page often as videos and activities will be updated weekly.
