Center for Biodiversity Education at the Dworsky Tropical Conservatory
Construction works to create a Center for Biodiversity Education within an expanded Dworsky Tropical Conservatory began in October 2013 are scheduled to last around a year.
The first digger onsite!
Moving the screw pine (Pandanus) to a more sheltered position before the roof comes off.
January 2014: Infrastructure work and the start of laying foundations in the pits.
April 2014: The large holes on either side of the existing building have been filled in and the outer walls for the new building are being constructed.
The old roof is off along with the entire metal structure that supported it. All that remains is the structure of the iconic cupola and the stone section of the conservatory.
