The Arnold Arboretum is a community resource for education, offering a variety of learning opportunities including lectures, classes, workshops, and tours of our living collections and historical landscape. Join us as we explore the biology and horticulture of woody plants, and delve into topics related to Earth’s biodiversity and evolutionary history, the environment, conservation biology, and key social issues associated with current science.
Ecology, plant communities, and climate are topics we’ll consider in lectures this month with Wheaton College Professor of Biology John Kricher (April 22), the Arboretum’s new faculty member Lizzie Wolkovich (April 24), and Boston University Professor of Biology Richard Primack (April 30). All three will encourage thinking about life on this planet now and what it may be like in the not too distant future. Read about these lectures and register.
Also, on April 16, Arboretum Director William (Ned) Friedman will delve into the 142-year history of North America’s oldest public arboretum and discuss new initiatives in collections development, botanical and horticultural research, and programs for the public. Come learn what old trees and new thinking are up to at the Arnold Arboretum. Register »
