THE RAINFOREST:

Tropical Treasures

Welcome to the first Lasdon Conservatory exhibit.

You are standing on a forest floor surrounded by lush vegetation.  Drops of water slowly drip from the tapered leaves of low growing trees and vines.  The air is heavy with moisture.  You only see spots of dappled light emitted from the tall thick canopy of lofty trees growing overhead.  The green lushness is punctuated by brightly colored orchids and bromeliads growing from tree cavities and along low branches.  You hear the screeches, cries and calls of animals and birds as they move through their ancient, ancestral homes. 
Welcome to the rainforest.
