Have you experienced the horticultural amazement of our the Botanical Gardens? Wow! From four yearly seasonal displays, to the soft subtleness of the Desert Garden that stretches your thinking, the Botanical's "three gardens under glass" offer something for everyone! The conservatory experience can touch all of your senses including the peace that comes from a tropical vacation! Visitors can not only enjoy the beauty of so many aspects of our world and our environment, they too can unwind in the warmth of the lush Tropical Garden, "where orchids and palms thrive in the shadows of a cascading waterfall." Now that sounds like a vacation worth taking! And this Christmas, you can experience an amazing Christmas vacation at the Botanical Conservatory!

Saturdays: December 3, 10, and 17

12:00-4:00 pm

Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory

On select Saturdays this holiday season, Santa and two of his reindeer will be on site to greet the children while Mom and Dad take pictures to capture the moment. Explore the Conservatory in its holiday glory: this year’s theme is “Night Before Christmas.” All the delight of the holiday season comes together during the Conservatory’s year-end exhibit. Scenes from the famous poem, “A Visit from Saint Nicholas,” may be found throughout the Showcase Garden on a carpet of colorful poinsettias. The Conservatory's traditional 12-foot-tall poinsettia tree remains a focal point and family photo backdrop, and a stroll through the lighted gardens concludes a satisfying visit. What a fun and unique way to ring in the magic of Christmas this year! For more information, please visit them online. Regular Conservatory admission fees apply.
