There's so much to see and do at Powell Gardens! Exhibits in the Conservatory change six times a year and you will find no shortage of programs, performances, drop-in activities, classes and more on our Calendar of Events.
Coming up next
Beginning Saturday, November 30, the conservatory will be decked out in full holiday style. For 2013, the decor will give a nod to our fine feathered friends, including the peacock! The exhibit will remain on display through December 31. Learn more about all of our holiday events here.
