Miami Beach

Rare orchids are coming back to Miami Beach. 20,000 of them.

In an effort to bring back orchid prominence to the urban area, the city of Miami Beach is joining Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden’s Million Orchid Project, which aims to plant 20,000 native orchids on the island over the next three years. The city joins municipalities like Coral Gables, Palmetto Bay, Cutler Bay, Bal Harbour and South Miami to revitalize the orchid population in conjunction with the project.
