  Krohn Conservatory
by Stephen-KarenConn

Built in 1933, Krohn Conservatory hosts a collection of more than 1,000 plant species from around the world. Inside are sections that replicate temperate, desert, and tropical rainforest climates. There is a 20-foot waterfall and a fish filled stream, as well as orchid and bonsai collections. We especially enjoy visiting here in winter for a brief respite from the cold and snow outside.

Another of our favorite times to visit the Krohn Conservatory is during the annual spring butterfly show. Countless butterflies are released to add their flashs of color to an already beautiful display. Sometimes you may also spot an Iguana climbing on a branch or rock.

Krohn Conservatory is open daily from 10 - 5. However, as of this writing, it is closed until Oct. 22, 2004, for renovations.

The conservatory is operated by the Cincinnati Parks Dept. and is free to the public.
