OEC began working on Orchids: Take a Walk on the Wild Side with the Smithsonian Horticulture Services Division in June 2005. Our Design and Editing department worked with staff from Horticulture Services and the Natural History Museum's Botany Department to develop the script and design concept. Our Fabrication and Model Making shops built a walkway, panels, a "research station," trees, vines, and even rain!
