Biome Walk and Sip

This is a guided walk led by Horticulturalist, Alexis Lorentzen.

Join staff for an after-hours tour of the Conservatory’s biomes and exhibitions! Sip a Biome beer (a collaboration with Seventh Son) or glass of wine while strolling through the Pacific Island Waters Garden, Desert, Rainforest and Himalayas. Learn about our rare plants and the rotating exhibitions in the Dorothy M. Davis Showhouse. The tour will also take us to the historic John F. Wolfe Palm House to view the Palm Collection and hear about one of our oldest and most storied plants.

The walk will be indoors but require movement through the Conservatory. Please dress appropriately. Contact us with any mobility questions in advance.
