Sixty Plus - Under the Dome with Eric Imperiale

Monday, April 24, 2017 - 13:00

The Conservatory of Flowers has captivated guests for more than a century.                    

This gem of Victorian architecture has a long and storied history and is the oldest public wood-and-glass conservatory in North America.  The Conservatory is one of the most photographed and beloved attractions in San Francisco for residents and tourists alike.  Its plan collections and special exhibits draw horticultural societies, botany students, plan enthusiasts and visitors hale from near and far.  With Eric, we will explore the history and wonders of this living museum.

Eric is a horticulturalist at the Conservatory where he is responsible for the cloud forest gallery and the renowned collection of cool growing orchids as well as a member of the special exhibits team.  His love of horticulture started in childhood; he worked as a teen in the orchid industry and has won numerous awards for his orchids.
