Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory

500+ Species from Five Continents

The five-story Lena Meijer Tropical Conservatory, the largest of its kind in Michigan, features tranquil waterfalls and streams winding around lush vegetation. From the massive Bismarck Palm, a native of Madagascar, to the fragrant Orange Jessamin, a native of the tropical Americas, visitors will find plants from tropical habitats all over the world. Each March and April, the conservatory is home to the largest tropical butterfly exhibition in the nation. Thousands of butterflies, imported as chrysalises from Africa, Asia, and South and Central America, fly freely within the conservatory.
