Everglades Wonder Gardens celebrates Robert & Karin Moe Tea House grand opening

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (Dec. 3, 2019) – Everglades Wonder Gardens celebrated the completion of the Robert & Karin Moe Tea House with a grand opening ceremony and afternoon tea.
            Guests were invited to the French iron, Victorian-style tea house to enjoy an afternoon of tea, scones, finger sandwiches and other treats. Karin Moe was in attendance to celebrate the occasion, along with Everglades Wonder Gardens President and CEO Thomas Hecker.
A unique venue that can host up to 48 people, the Robert & Karin Moe Tea House is a perfect location for private special events and gatherings. The tea house was built with a donated solarium originating from Paris and is fully glass-enclosed with air conditioning for year-round use.

The Robert & Karin Moe Tea House is the second of four pavilions constructed to create an enhanced guest experience at the Wonder Gardens. The Ernie & Sandie Schaub Butterfly and Orchid Pavilion opened in October and features exotic orchids and native butterflies. The Terry & Arlene Riegel Lorikeet Pavilion is expected to open in mid-January and will feature free-flying rainbow lorikeets. The Honeycreeper and Sunbird Pavilion is still available for funding from interested benefactors, which will also feature tropical pollinating birds.
An 83-year-old cultural icon and designated historic resource of the City of Bonita Springs, the Everglades Wonder Gardens is a community centerpiece that has provided generations of Floridians and visitors the opportunity to experience rare and exotic plants and wildlife.
The environmental, educational, historical and recreational attraction is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Throughout 3.5 acres of botanical gardens, there are thousands of unusual trees and plants and hundreds of rescued birds and reptiles for visitors to enjoy.
In 2014, Bonita Wonder Gardens, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed to purchase and operate the Everglades Wonder Gardens. While preserving the iconic attraction, the nonprofit organization continues to restore wildlife enclosures, nurture the botanical beauty of the property, add education programs and further enhance this Bonita Springs jewel.
