Dickinson Family Education Conservatory

Home to a collection of almost 5,000 rare tropical plant species from around the world. The Dickinson Family Education Conservatory is an 8,000 sf glass enclosed state of the art facility. Bringing the public the opportunity to enjoy these plants. 

It was a cool day when we visited the gardens. Stepping in the conservatory you are met with warmth and humidity. If you stay in there long enough the watering system will kick in and you will be in the middle of a light tropical mist!
