How fitting for a year in which the Philadelphia Flower Show’s theme of “ARTiculture – where art meets horticulture” that the show would include a gallery of the consummate artist: frogs! With their intricate, glass-like exteriors and rhythmic movements and sounds, frogs literally paint nature with color.
Adventure Aquarium’s very own Frogs: Nature’s Messenger exhibit served as the inspiration for northeast Philadelphia’s Abraham Lincoln High School’s Flower Show display, which visitors can check out now through March 9 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Hand in hand with our husbandry team, students at Lincoln High School spent months learning about the critical role frogs play in predicting the health of our environment.
With that as inspiration, the students themed their exhibit to offer Flower Show attendees a unique peek into a rainforest research hut where guests can learn how important frogs are to the environment and how detrimental changes in land, air and water threaten frog populations.
There are a total of five amphibian exhibits incorporated into Lincoln’s spectacular display, each tank filled with beautiful live plants from South America, as well as exotic frog species including Amazon milk frogs, red-eyed tree frogs, several colorful poison dart frogs, a waxy monkey frog and more!
Visit our Frogs at the Philadelphia Flower Show through March 9 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Guests can bring their Philadelphia Flower Show ticket stub and receive $4 off a general admission ticket at Adventure Aquarium (redeem at our Box Office) through March 31, 2014.
