Orchids Forever @ Cleveland Botanical Garden
February 13 @ 12:00 pm - April 11 @ 8:30 pm
Over the course of the show, thousands of orchids will fill the galleries, hallways and Glasshouses at the botanical gardens.
Providing a safe and comfortable experience was top-of-mind for the Orchids Forever design team. A socially distanced one-way path will guide visitors through the experience. A limited number of advanced reservations are available each day. Face masks must be worn in the interior garden building.
Orchid Artwork: Silk paintings by Gunter Schwegler will grace the walls of Orchids Forever.
Rainforest Creature Feature: Guests are invited to meet the critters that call the Glasshouse home during special meet-and-greets with the animals Fridays through Sundays at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Get up close with a panther chameleon, radiated tortoises, an eastern box turtle, African bullfrog or smokey jungle frog, and Madagascar hissing roaches. And don’t forget to check out the new addition to the amphibian case in our Costa Rica glasshouse—dart frogs! Ten bumble bee dart frogs will be on display in a new enclosure.
Learn as You Go: Guests will receive an Orchids Forever educational packet with activities for learners of all ages including: a labeled orchid cutout to color, assemble and display to have your own forever orchid at home; hidden picture art with pollinators unique to orchids and key bioindicators specific to the health of orchid ecosystems; and a special QR code that will transport guests to four different countries where they can search for orchids and orchid pollinators native to each of those exotic locations. Each guest will receive their own packet will supplies last.
