 The Belle Isle Botanical Society is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit volunteer organization that provides volunteers for gardening, guided tours for adults and hosts a Science Learning Lab for elementary school students.  The Society is also involved in fundraising activities geared toward the preservation and maintenance of the historic Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory and gardens on Belle Isle.  The Society works closely with the City of Detroit Recreation and General Services Departments in helping to polish this jewel on Belle Isle.  Most recently the Society funded over $12,000 in replacement of broken glass in the Conservatory and greenhouses.
