The Conservatory

MGM National Harbor’s latest Conservatory display honors the Year of the Rabbit and is designed to wish prosperity and luck to all who visit. Designers Jeremy Hargrove and Le Savarese of SolarLife Technology worked to bring the display to life, and a Feng Shui master ensured the positive flow of energy throughout the Conservatory.
