November Sketchout at Como Zoo and Conservatory

THE STORY
In Como Zoo and Conservatory has been a fixture of St. Paul for over 100 years.  With beautiful mix of new and old architecture, the Conservatory houses hundreds (thousands?) of varieties of palms, orchids, ferns, and tropical plants. The Zoo has several  newly renovated exhibits that are must-sees: Gorillas Forest and Polar Odyssey. Based on the weather  and your hardiness you can choose to sketch inside or out.
As if that wasn't enough, the Minnesota En Plein Air: A Painting Exhibition is currently on display. It's sure to be inspiring!
