Orchids at Longwood Gardens

If you were asked to name the largest family of flowering plants in the world, what would be your response?

If you chose the orchid, you’d be right on the money.

The largest family of flowering plants in the world is the orchid — a flower that is acclaimed as one of the most beautiful, delicate and graceful flowers in the world. The Royal Botanical Gardens of Kew list over 20,000 accepted species with about 800 new species added each year. Additionally, horticulturists have more than 100,000 hybrids and cultivars.

Every year when January arrives, Longwood Gardens (Route 1, Kennett Square, 610-388-1000, www.longwoodgardens.org) celebrates the ultra-popular plant during “Orchid Extravaganza” — an annual event that opens this year on January 20 and continues through March 25.

The celebration of the orchid species features thousands of orchid blooms along with a variety of displays and special exhibits throughout its four-acre conservatory. “Orchid Extravaganza” will also feature stunning displays of orchids in planting beds, containers and innovative exhibits.

As one of the first plant collections at Longwood, orchids have held a place of distinction since 1922. The site’s talented horticulturists celebrate the beauty and variety of orchids with an artful display that includes a towering 12-foot-tall archway, a spectacular orchid curtain, and hundreds of vibrant Vanda orchids adorning the Silver Garden.

Approximately 5,000 colorful orchids hang from baskets, create inspiring arrangements and adorn unique forms throughout “Orchid Extravaganza.” Those who visit the floral extravaganza in March will have the opportunity to see Longwood Gardens’ rare sky-blue poppies in bloom in the Conservatory during Longwood’s inaugural Winter Blues Festival.

Another attraction is “OrKid Days,” which are scheduled for February 19 and March 17. Each “OrKid Day” includes a kids’ performance, craft sessions and the “Orchid Sorting Game.”

Admission to Longwood Gardens is $23 for adults, $20 for seniors and $12 for students.

Last year, the inaugural “Women’s March on Philadelphia” was staged with great results. The event is being celebrated again this year with a variety of activities on January 20.

Women’s March on Philadelphia 2018

“Women’s March on Philadelphia 2018: We Resist. We Persist. We Rise.” (www.womensmarchphl.com) will get underway at 10:30 a.m. with participants gathering at Aviator Park/Logan Square and then marching at 11 a.m. marching from Logan Square to Eakins Oval.

At noon, the rally with speakers and performers will begin at Eakins Oval.

After reviewing nearly 150 applications for everyday speakers and performers for the “Women’s March on Philadelphia 2018,” the organizers narrow the list to 12.

The roster includes Vashti Bandy (member of Tuesdays with Toomey, speaking about how “We Lead the Persistence”), Jenny Entin (computer science student at U Penn, speaking about women in engineering), Pauline Thompson Guerin (member of Philadelphia Veterans for Organization, speaking about veteran women and sexual assault), Amy Gunzelman (17-year-old senior at Spring Grove HS, speaking about her persistence in her community), and Michele Leahy (speaking about “Gimp Gals are Here Too!”).

The lineup also features Jamie Perrapato (member of Turn PA Blue, speaking about “Getting More Democratic Women Elected to PA State House”), Melissa Robbins (member of Emerge PA and NOW, two organizations where women are empowered to lead, speaking about “Staying Committed and Being the Change”), Marguerite Sexton (performing her original public inspiration chant “We Are One”), Daejah Vaughn (15-year-old spoken word poet), Voices Rising Philadelphia (community chorus of women and men committed to social justice and motivating people to resist — to persist —- to arise!), and Barbara Wittman (speaking about bullying and winning).

Mutter Museum

This is the opening weekend for an interesting new exhibit at the Mutter Museum (19 South 22nd Street, Philadelphia, 215-560-8564, muttermuseum.org).

“Woven Strands: The Art of Human Hair Work” will open on January 19 and run through July 12.

A favored folk art of the 18th and 19th century, hair art was a sentimental expression of grief and love, usually created by women whose identities have become anonymous over time. Human hair (from both living and deceased persons) was used to form flower bouquets, wreaths, braided jewelry chains, weeping willows, and painted scenes of mourning. Considered to be a form of portraiture, these were cherished tokens to preserve the memory of a deceased loved one, chart a vibrant family tree of the living, or to be traded as friendship keepsakes. It is rare to view such pieces publicly as they were created in domestic settings, for home display.

From six private collections, the Mütter Museum along with John Whitenight and Evan Michelson have assembled an exquisite group of hair art and jewelry as well as accompanying materials that discuss the social expectations of Victorian-era mourning rituals that ruled 19th century society with strict standards.

The 32nd Annual Motorsports Race Car & Trade Show

If you’re into hot cars, then cold days probably won’t slow you down and keep you from your date with all things motorsports this weekend.

The 32nd Annual Motorsports Race Car & Trade Show will run from January 19-21 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center (100 Station Road, Oaks, 609-888-3618, www.a arn.com).

If you’re looking for a fun family activity – an indoor activity unaffected by the weather — Linvilla Orchards (137 West Knowlton Road, Media, 610-876-7116,www.linvilla.com) has something just for you — the miniature golf course “Fore! the Planet.”

Fore! The Planet

Linvilla Orchard’s “Fore! The Planet” is a highly interactive and playful museum exhibit created by the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. This exhibition pairs important environmental issues with the fun of miniature golf.

It features 18 unique educational holes on a variety of topics — butterfly metamorphosis, a tropical rainforest, evolution, dinosaur extinction, food chains and more. Kids of all ages can enjoy playing miniature golf while learning about our environment on every hole.

The first hole is “Butterfly Life Cycle” and players must putt through each stage of the colorful insect’s metamorphosis. The next five holes are titled “Seed Dispersal,” “Bat Sonar,” “Food Chain,” “Evolution of a Golfer” and “Backyard Explorer” followed by “Natural Selection” and “Predators and Prey.”

On the “Dinosaur Extinction” hole, players get to hit their balls toward the scientific theory of dinosaur extinction they find most plausible. The remainder of the thought-provoking holes are “Recycling,” “Water Pollution,” “Landfills,” “Wild Corridors,” “Bird Migration,” “Spawning Salmon,” “Alien Species,” “Population Threats” and “Rainforest Threats.”

The mini-course is open daily from 9 a.m. -5 p.m. through March 31. Tickets are $6.95 (ages 11 and over) and $5.95 (ages 10 and under).

Another fun activity—one that is nature-related and educational — is the “Sea Turtle Hatchling Naming Contest” at the Adventure Aquarium (1 Riverside Drive, Camden, New Jersey, 856-365-3300, www.adventureaquarium.com).

On January 2, the Aquarium welcomed its own “Baby New Year” of 2018 – its new loggerhead sea turtle hatchling.

The Adventure Aquarium needs your help naming him.

During the month of January, donate spare change toward your favorite name at the voting station located in the Main Lobby of the Aquarium. All proceeds collected will be donated to Sea Turtle Conservancy and help sea turtles in the wild.

The name options are D’Artagnan (Dart for short — of “Stranger Things 2” fame), Davey, Tyrion (after the fan-favorite “Game of Thrones” character) and Maverick (as a homage to “Top Gun”).

The young turtle is a part of a rehab and release program. Every year, the Aquarium receives a hatchling from North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores Sea Turtle Program to rehabilitate for one year.

Biologists will help guide and train the hatchling to do activities it would normally do in the wild as sort of “survival school” for sea turtles. After a year, the hatchling is released into the wild off the coast of North Carolina along with other yearlings from aquariums over the country.

You can now visit the young turtle on exhibit in Sea Turtle Cove, adjacent to Ocean Realm where the Aquarium’s adult sea turtles reside.

Other attractions at the Adventure Aquarium include “Caribbean Currents,” “Hippo Haven,” “Creature Feature,” “The Grotto,” “Touch a Shark,” “Ocean Realm,” “Stingray Beach Club,” “Shark Bridge,” “Piranha Falls,” “Penguin Island,” “Shark Realm,” and “Little Blue Beach.”

Admission to the Adventure Aquarium is $29 for adults and $21 for children (ages 2-12). Children under two are admitted free with a paying adult.

At multimedia stations, visitors will experience audio and video clips of contemporary Native Americans speaking of the many ways in which they maintain their religious, political, linguistic, and artistic independence.

Material highlights include Lenape objects from the Delaware Valley region, war bonnets and regalia, intricately woven baskets, contemporary Native American art, and famous stone tools from Clovis, New Mexico, that, at 9,000 to 11,000 years old, are among the oldest objects in the Museum’s collection.

Over the course of five years, nearly 300 objects representing 85 tribes will be rotated for display. Visitors will be able to investigate and sort these objects according to personal interests at interactive digital stations, fashioning their own unique experiences while gaining insight into the materials on display.
