  • Free

From January 19 through February 24, visitors to the New York Botanical Garden can escape winter to “Tropical Paradise,” a showcase of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory’s permanent collection of tropical trees, flowers and foliage, including orange-yellow crotons, fuschia bromeliads, and rosy-red hibiscus. Through self-guided strolls, use of a virtual smart phone tour, or participation in docent-led tours of the conservatory offered daily at 12:30 pm, visitors can encounter many surprises in the largest Victorian-style glasshouse in the country. Visitors can also enjoy a display of tropical photos from the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition and partake in photography lessons on Sundays. Children can participate in a scavenger hunt that begins in the conservatory and continues in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden.
