Join us for our very first symposium! This “Arborium Symposium” is being hosted in connection with our current Carol Hubbard Memorial Natural History Exhibit: “The Secret Life of Trees”, which was created in partnership with PoCo Heritage Trees.
This symposium will be an all day speaker event meant to bring together people who are passionate about trees and nature! Our speakers include academic researchers, community advocates, and passionate not-for-profit employees advocating on behalf of our global forests and trees.
Join us for all, or parts, of the day’s speakers and networking, and share your passion for trees!
