Research Talks

As part of our sesquicentennial, Arboretum Research Talks will celebrate 150 years of research at the Arboretum. Most AA research talks will feature speakers with an Arboretum connection (Arboretum 150 logo) including current and former scientists, postdoctoral researchers, students, interns, and visitors researching in our labs and greenhouses at Weld Hill, on the grounds, and in the collections. Our sesquicentennial offers a unique opportunity to celebrate our illustrious past and help define and amplify what it means to be a twenty-first century arboretum in service to science and humankind.

The Arnold Arboretum and the Harvard University Herbaria (HUH) will hold a joint seminar series. All talks are free and open to all. To receive announcements, sign up for the AA Research Talks mailing list.

WATCH LIVE wherever you are! Talks will either be available LIVE on Zoom (please note registration is REQUIRED) OR in-person and live-streamed on YouTube.

In-person Arboretum talks will be in the Weld Hill Lecture Hall with a live-stream on the Arboretum YouTube channel.

In-person HUH Seminars will be in the HUH Seminar Room 125 (22 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138) with a live-stream on the HUH YouTube channel.
