Upon entering the conservatory and getting hit with its warm, humid air, you immediately become aware of the tropical rainforest,
carnivorous-plant bog, and cloud forest environments that this facility re-creates. Over in the plant lab, hands-on exhibits
take basic botany lessons out of the textbook realm. Of the 207-acre property, 120 landscaped acres are open to visitors with
their more than 14,000 different varieties of plants in more than a dozen principal garden areas, including the Children's
Garden, Jungle Garden, and Desert Garden.
