Autumn Changes: Change can be good!

Learn that change can be a good thing during a new fall exhibit and train show at the Conservatory at Lasdon Park. The new exhibit “Autumn Changes: Change can be good,” features a fallen little Tupelo Leaf, who doesn’t want to change his colors and sets off on a journey to understand why it is so important for leaves to change color in fall. 

Built with 300 feet of track, visitors will stroll the winding path inside the Conservatory viewing miniature landscapes with animated characters, all tucked within an array of colorful plants, flowers, shrubs, and trees.

Tickets will be sold on-line only  with scheduled viewing times. Tickets are limited. No tickets will be sold on-site.  All visitors will be required to wear masks inside the Conservatory and observe all safety rules.
Allow approximately 15-20 minutes to view entire exhibit.
