Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show returns Saturday

ST. LOUIS – The gloomy weather has kept many people indoors this week. For those looking to get out of the house but stay indoors, the St. Louis Botanical Garden might just be the place.

The annual Orchid Show returns to the Jack C. Taylor Visitor Center’s Emerson Conservatory starting Saturday. The show runs until Feb. 25.

The all-indoor event is included with garden admission, and those who don’t have a membership are still welcome to join the event.
