During the winter months school groups can enjoy the warmth of the Conservatory and learn about the three distinct environments housed in it. Economic products such as cocoa (chocolate), banana, sugar cane and citrus are showcased in the tropical dome. Plants which prefer dry, or arid, atmospheres are found in the arid dome and colorful blooming plants populate the temperate house.
