Photo Gallery: The Million Orchid Project | May 15, 2015

More than 45 ninth graders at José Marti MAST 6-12 Academy attached orchids to trees outside the Hialeah school on Friday, May 15, 2015 as part of the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden's Million Orchid Project, in which they raised orchids from seedlings. In October 2014, Fairchild's education staff visited 30 Miami-Dade County high schools to teach students the art of deflasking the native and endangered orchids they have been growing as part of Fairchild’s Million Orchid Project. The first school orchid outplantings were at José Marti MAST 6-12 Academy, 5701 West 24th Ave.
