Linda Hoang, CTV Edmonton: The Muttart Conservatory is speeding up plans to replace glass panes on its greenhouse after a hail storm caused significant damage more than a week ago.
A hail storm on Aug. 23 broke hundreds of the greenhouse’s glass panes.
“Our contractors have come in to look at it and initial estimates were around 400 panes and now we’re up to 900 panes of glass, so it is quite significant the hail damage that the greenhouse did incur,” said Heather Seutter, director of the Muttart Conservatory.
Seutter says the pyramids did not get damaged in the storm.
The pyramids had been replaced a number of years ago to a tempered, tougher glass.
