Hidden Lake Gardens celebrated the 70th Anniversary of Harry Fee’s donation of “a series of beautiful scenic pictures and views” to Michigan State University for “the benefit of the public.”  A special thank you to all of our members, volunteers, and visitors in 2015 for helping us to commemorate 70 years of Hidden Lake Gardens!

The image below is the new visual mark for Hidden Lake Gardens.  This emblem will begin to appear on various HLG brochures, advertisements, and promotions - both online and in print.  The daffodil flower is very well-known as a spring attraction to Hidden Lake Gardens and was among the earliest plantings of Harry Fee.  The undulating curve below the flower represents both Hidden Lake (the dip) and the Irish Hills region (the crest).



Hidden Lake Gardens began as a simple testament to the education and enjoyment of the public. The Gardens are a natural paradise, a place to escape from everyday life and connect with the world of nature. The bonsai courtyard displays miniature trees as works of art.  Rare and exotic plants boldly thrive in the arid, tropical, and temperate conservatory settings. Annuals and perennials offer bright blooms in the sun and soothing foliage in shade.  Trees and shrubs across acres and acres of rolling terrain demonstrate their natural and ornamental attributes.  From the comfort of a car or on meandering footpaths, visitors have at their disposal a visual treat, ranging from the modest to the magnificent. Every season offers new highlights, views, and adventures. Come and experience this beautiful botanical garden and arboretum in the scenic Irish Hills of southeast Michigan.
