From blue and gold macaws, to the bromeliads hosting an entire ecosystem within their leaves, rainforests are rich in biodiversity. Join educators from the Bloedel Conservatory to examine colourful feathers from tropical birds, test your knowledge of the rainforest and discover how poison dart frogs, dragonflies and crabs depend on air plants high up in the canopy to survive. Get a glimpse of Vancouver's pocket of tropical splendour, perched atop Queen Elizabeth Park, at the highest point in the city.
