Early Access Plant Photography

Enjoy an opportunity to photograph the beauty of the pyramids before the conservatory opens to the public! You?ll be granted access to all four of the pyramids to take photos of our diverse plant collection for two hours as part of a small group of up to 20 photographers. You?ll be free to move between each pyramid when you like, too! A staff member will be available during this time, roving through the pyramids to answer any questions you may have. At the end of the session, you are welcome to stay in the facility, but there may be other activities beginning at that point. Join us to catch the early morning light! Participants will have to bring their own cameras (and tripods, if you?d like).
