What You'll Get

Plants, mankind’s greatest enemy, are finally on the ropes thanks to global warming. Teach your children how to hunt the last of these enormous nitrogen junkies by observing them in captivity with today's Groupon: for $42, you get a one-year associate plus membership to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, located in Coral Gables. This Groupon expires three months from today's date.

Since 1938, the 83-acre Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden has dazzled flora lovers with its heralded collection of shrubs, vines, fruit trees, and cycads. The Associate Plus membership is good for unlimited free admission during regular hours for two adults and their children or grandchildren under 18, as well as a host of other herbaceous benefits. Receive priority registration and reduced fees for Fairchild's classes, in which students can learn to paint luscious landscapes or grow their own without using bulldozers. The membership also includes the Tropical Garden quarterly magazine, free admission to more than 200 garden and science museums across the country and around the world, and access to the Member's Lending Library, where knowledge is rooted in books about roots.

The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is comprised of several impressive exhibits, such as the Windows to the Tropics Conservatory, brimming with orchids, bromeliads, and one of the world's longest ferns that hasn't been used in a prison escape. Touch and possibly taste exotic fruits from the Amazon in the Whitman Tropical Fruit Pavilion, or walk past African floral life at the Lin Lougheed Spiny Forest of Madagascar.

This Groupon may be used to extend the benefits of current Associate Plus members by one year.

About Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

Since 1938, the keepers of the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden have cultivated more than 85 acres of floral displays with a mixture of science and art. The gardens are lush with plants valuable to scientists and educators, and the tropical landscapes designed by William Lyman Phillips are like ever-evolving canvases, blooming and fading as the seasons change. Most of the palms, cycads, flowering trees, and vines were collected from the wild, but the grounds also harbor endangered plant species.

Guides give English and Spanish tram tours as well as walking tours through specific parts of the gardens, or visitors can explore the displays at their leisure, wandering through the 16,428-square foot two-level Tropical Plant Conservatory exhibit, which blooms with orchids, fruit trees, and rare palms. Cascading waterfalls punctuate the stream flowing through the 2-acre Richard H. Simons Rainforest, where visitors admire the diverse plant life and reflect on the worldwide threat of rapidly vanishing rainforests. The Wings of the Tropics exhibit features thousands of exotic butterflies with tropical fish and rare plant life. Butterflies are released twice daily and the Butterfly Metamorphosis Lab lets kids experience them up close. The water gardens combine tranquility pools with waterfalls, sculpture, and lily pads to evoke a sense of calm.
