Join OMA for our hands-on August Workshop - "Nature as Living History: How to Expand Your Museum to the Outdoors!"

Registration deadline: August 8, 2019

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
