Beginning February 25, 2013, construction work will occur in the U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory front landscape. A monumental urn will be installed in the central bed of the Terrace gardens, and site work around the urn will connect this bed with previous terrace improvements. The urn will be made of cast aluminum, and is scheduled to arrive in April. The final project will be completed in May. Signage will direct visitors around the work to the main Conservatory entrance which will remain open during the work.
