A highlight is the Glasshouse, a 17,000 square foot conservatory. It is home to plant and animal life from two separate biomes, the spiny desert of Madagascar and the cloud forest of Costa Rica. It features over 350 species of plants and 50 species of animals, including hundreds of butterflies. 

The Garden’s 2nd floor Guren Art Gallery features regularly-changing exhibitions by local and national artists in many media. The common link from exhibit to exhibit is artistic inspiration taken from the botanical and natural worlds. Painting, photography, and occasionally sculpture and nontraditional media forms and even student work, have all been on display here over the years.
