About Snow Days
Do you remember when school was cancelled because of unexpected winter weather? Snow days were a surprise, a break in routine, an invitation to play. In the Conservatory's holiday imagination, snowkids go out for snowball fights and forts while snowmoms bake cookies and prepare hot chocolate. Snowmen and snow angels mark the spot where families spent time together. After sunset the light lingers, bouncing off that white blanket of snow. Wet gloves and boots are dried by the fire and everyone recounts their tales of the day over a supper of soup and cheese toasties. Then it's off to bed...because there might be school again tomorrow. Surround yourself with nature at an oasis in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne. Enjoy lush seasonal displays, four outdoor gardens, the Tropical Garden with orchids, palms, and a cascading waterfall, and the Sonoran Desert Garden.
