Garden to Glass: Totally Tropical

Escape to the tropics and explore the Bolz Conservatory at Olbrich Botanical Gardens. Get an “insider’s view” of this tropical oasis and learn about the plants, stories and people that make this indoor garden special.

From towering palm trees to tiny carnivorous plants, more than 650 species of tropical plants call the Conservatory home. The 50-foot-high glass pyramid also features a rushing waterfall, free flying birds, and fragrant orchids.

Finish with a signature drink created with ingredients from the Conservatory. Take home a souvenir glass along with recipes for more botanically inspired drinks.
