Acts of Service

Botanical Society of South Bend

The Botanical Society of South Bend was formed to manage and upkeep the Potawatomi Conservatories. Designed and built in the 1960’s by Lord & Burnham, one of the 20th century’s pre-eminent designers of greenhouses, the Conservatories were gifts from Ella Morris and the Muessel-Ellison Foundation to the people of South Bend. Recent renovations will preserve these beautiful structures for future generations.

As part of our mission, the Conservatories act as a center for botanical education. Every year, we offer a variety of classes in gardening and plant care, science workshops for children, and special lectures. School groups of all ages are welcome to visit and use the Conservatories as a resource for learning.
