The largest new garden in the 40-year history of Mounts is a series of see-through walkways and permanent and moveable aquatic plants that will allow visitors to feel and connect to the tropical wetlands around them. A wetland is a land area that is saturated with water, either permanently or seasonally, and takes on the characteristics of a distinct ecosystem that serves as home to a wide range of plant and animal life. Additional highlights will include waterfalls flowing over natural stone, an area for wading birds, and a wall covered with Bromeliads, offering some of the best foliage colors in the plant kingdom.
The cost to attend the annual TROPICAL FRUIT FESTIVAL is FREE for Mounts members and children 12 and under, and only $10 for adults. Tickets are available for purchase online at www.mounts.org.
The TROPICAL FRUIT FESTIVAL 2017 is sponsored by Friends of the Mounts Botanical Garden, Tequesta Brewing Company, Accomplice Brewery and Ciderworks, 97.9 WRMF, Florida Weekly, Palm Beach County and IFEAS.
