Meijer Gardens will be closed Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 27,
so that our volunteers and staff can enjoy the holiday with family and friends.
We will open at 9 am on Friday, November 28. Enjoy the holiday!
In the lush environment of the Tropical Conservatory grows the Crown Gum (sapodilla) tree, with glossy, dark-green oval leaves. This tree is famous for its white, gummy sap called chicle, the origin of chewing gum.
