Group events such as birthday parties, homeschool and preschool tours, and private or corporate events are available with capacity limitations due to COVID. However, the conservatory offers virtual field trips, which can be an alternative option for parents.

This conservatory has been authorized as a Certified Autism Center (CAC), where guests with autism and other intellectual disabilities can have the best experience that attends to their needs.
