Plant Exploration Lecture: Then and Now (On-site and Virtual Livestream)

March 23, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Thursday, March 23, 6:30-8pm


On-site location: Weld Hill Research Building, 1300 Centre Street, Boston, 02131

The Arnold Arboretum has been collecting plants from around the world for 150 years, but plant exploration today looks very different than it did in the 1800s. From changes in collecting practices to an evolving relationship between the Arboretum and its international partners, a lot has changed in the last century. Join Head of the Library and Archives Lisa Pearson and Keeper of the Living Collections Michael Dosmann to learn what these trips were like in the days of yore, and what they are like now.

Parking is available on-site at the Weld Hill Research Building. Please register here.
