    FTBG "National Orchid Garden" - Introduction Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden initiated its newest conservation project, officially started on March 8 - 10, 2019, as part of its "International Orchid Festival" event. FTBG's goal is to become known as "The National Orchid Garden" whereby it will exhibit the largest orchid collection in the Western Hemisphere. 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. Instead, it wants to be recognized as a national garden for orchids. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Click on Picture or Number

  • 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.
