|The American Orchid Society's gardens and greenhouse will close to the public, and a school for autistic children will replace the popular botanical attraction on Jog Road in West Delray Beach. |
After coming close to closing in 2009, the American Orchid Society now plans to sell its property next to Morikami Park to the Sandra C. Slomin Foundation and Family Center for Autism and Related Disabilities.
Sale of the 5-acre property has yet to be finalized, and the American Orchid Society remains open to the public until the deal is completed.
