Has your museum thought about its outdoors as an extension of the collections? Maybe your institution has a historically significant tree planted by the founder or a plant installed by staff in honor of an institutional milestone. Or, your museum may want to mark an anniversary by planting a tree or garden but no one on staff has a horticulture background.
Participants will learn more about arboreta and how they act as a tree museum that provides beauty, education and plant knowledge including:
The value in accessioning and conserving the surrounding environment
How to plant for longevity with horticulture recommendations
The relationship between plants and historic buildings
Significant trees and propagating them for your collection
