Picture 8For a modest $3 admission, visitors can learn how plants living at the Conservatory are the key ingredients in many scrumptious desserts. Bananas, vanilla beans, cinnamon bark, and chocolate trees abound, and Tropical Treat Stations throughout the Conservatory offer the opportunity to sample these natural sweets. Hands-on activity stations give both young and old the opportunity to make a variety of scented gifts and cards, and live music at the Tropical Café rounds out the day. Special guests on February 6 offer a honey-tasting event; on February 13, the special highlight is a vanilla-tasting presentation.
