Orchid Show returning to Toledo Zoo

        Visitors to the Toledo Zoo can become immersed in blooming beauty Feb. 12-28 as the Zoo presents its Orchid Sow: The Science of Orchids throughout the ProMedica Museum of Natural History and Aquarium.
        Discover the vibrant colors, delightful scents and interesting backstories of rare and exotic orchids from around the world during this annual event.
        In addition to more than 1,700 orchids, the three-week show will also include a variety of classes, demonstrations and workshops. With topics ranging from how to care for orchids, to how to photograph one, and how to make your own terrarium, there is something for everyone.
        New to the Orchid Show, visitors can see a “bee’s-eye view” of what orchids look like to pollinators. This unique experience allows visitors an Ultraviolet Fluorescence view of orchids, animals and minerals.
        The flower power doesn’t stop when the show ends – order an orchid of your own from the virtual Plant Sale running concurrently with the show. Pick-up will be Tuesday, March 2 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.
