Fairchild is dedicated to exploring, explaining and conserving the world of tropical plants. One of the premier conservation and education-based gardens in the world and a recognized international leader in both Florida and international conservation, currently Fairchild has field programs in over 20 countries.
With 45,000 members and over 1,200 volunteers, Fairchild plays many roles, including museum, laboratory, learning center and conservation research facility, but its greatest role is preserving biodiversity, which the garden's scientists, staff and volunteers all contribute to on a daily basis. In 2012, Fairchild also became the home of the American Orchid Society.
Fairchild is also a cultural leader with well-known artists and musicians exhibiting and performing year-round. More than 350,000 visitors from around the world, including guests from Art Basel/Miami Beach, and South Florida residents tour the Garden and the contemporary art exhibitions exhibited in the Garden's 83 acres each year.
