Nature as Living History: How to Expand Your Museum to the Outdoors
August 12 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm$15 – $25
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
