Since 1938, Fairchild Botanical Gardens in Miami, FL has served as repository of rare and endangered tropical plant species from around the world. The collection has grown to be a resource for education and research, recognized worldwide as one of the best. Their team of horticulturists travel the world to bring rare/endangered species into the collection so that they might be studied and better understood.
The Gardens also offer a beautiful addition to the cultural and educational environment of Miami. School groups and clubs routinely visit the Gardens to discover and learn more about the world of plants around us and their importance in our lives.
