The new exhibit just opened at the Conservatory of Flowers. It's called Stranded! Tropical Island Survival. They'll take you on an adventure when t three-hour boat tour goes horribly wrong (cue Gilligan?) on your island vacation in paradise. These plants could save your life.
Visitors to the new exhibit "wash up" on a tropical shore to learn all about island survival. Walking through a living jungle of life-saving plants, you'll discover the best sources of building materials, food and water and see examples of structures and tools-all created with a touch of castaway kitsch. Fun survival facts fill the gallery, including tips for climbing coconut trees and more. You might even learn about how to lash palm fronds together to build shelter, harvest clean water found inside bamboo and fashion a snare from a vine.
