  • April Field Trip 2019 | ealoclub

    April Field Trip This page is dedicated to showing the photos from the club's annual field trip. This year the group was fortunate to be able to go the "The Kampong". This is the historical residence of Dr. David Fairchild, who was known as the "Christopher Columbus of the Plant World". David and Marian (daughter of Alexander Graham Bell) bought the property in 1916 and permanently moved there after David's retirement from the United States Department of Agriculture (Washington, D.C.) in 1927. The group experienced a 1.5 hour history and garden walking tour, led by two club members who are Kampong docents. As a bonus, the members were treated to a wonderful box lunch, followed by members independently exploring the property. The total experience was a gift to club members.

  • FTBG National Orchid Garden = Part 2

    FTBG "National Orchid Garden" - Part 2 Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden initiated its newest conservation project, officially started on March 8 - 10, 2019, as part of its "International Orchid Festival" event.

Hundreds of thousands, if not a million, orchids will be placed throughout the garden. 90% of these orchids will be permanently mounted. A slideshow show was created to both describe the entire project and show photographs of orchids that have already been placed in the garden. This slideshow comes in three(3) parts, located on three(3) separate website pages. ​ ***Please note that FTBG is not renaming the garden.

  • Zoo Miami Orchid Project | Miami | Eastern Airlines Orchid Club

    Zoo Miami Project Many of the club members were also members of the South Florida Orchid Society (SFOS). About 1985, after visiting the San Diego Zoo, Jill Sidran, the president of ths SFOS, promoted interest in having Miami MetroZoo (now Zoo Miami) designated as a rescue center for confiscated plants. After the U.S. Department of the Interior granted the designation, the Zoo built a greenhouse and the SFOS members spent Saturdays placing both donated and confiscated plants in trees and exhibits throughout the Zoo. About 1987, the SFOS felt it could no longer continue with this project. Since the EALOC members felt this was a worthwhile project, EALOC took it over and continues with it to present time. After the devastation of Hurricane Andrew, the greenhouse was rebuilt by the Zoo and the watering system was installed by EALOC members. The greenhouse is now maintained by the club. Through this project, the Zoo Miami's botanical gardens are enhanced for Zoo patrons to enjoy. In appreciation, a bronze plaque is permanently displayed in Zoo Miami to recognize EALOC's contributions. Visit Zoo Miami Website Zoo Miami Foundation

  • FTBG Million Orchid Project | Miami | Eastern Airlines Orchid Club

    Million Orchid Project While visiting Singapore, Dr. Carl Lewis was impressed with the way native orchids had been reintroduced into the urban area. In fact, results have shown that in some cases, these orchids thrived and were doing better than in rural areas. Dr. Lewis was inspired by what he saw and wanted to do the same in South Florida. Due to exploitation, urbn development and agriculture, native orchids were almost eliminated. Thus, the Million Orchid Project was born and the goal is that within five years, businesses, schools, residences, as well as other local places will be able to appreciate and enjoy the native orchids that have been returned to the community. Go to the Fairchild Tropical Garden "Million Orchid Project" webpage to read more about this worthy initiative. Hopefully, the reader will be encouraged to be a part of this project.
