Longwood Graduate Program Annual Symposium

March 2, 2012 Longwood Gardens Ballroom
The Panda and the Public Garden: Reimagining Our Conservation Story

This one-day symposium for public horticulture professionals is planned and hosted by the Fellows of the Longwood Graduate Program.

The 2012 Longwood Graduate Program Annual Symposium is bringing together the best of zoo and garden expertise to discover how public gardens and other institutions can inspire their audiences to care and advocate for conservation. The Symposium seeks to address more than just individual plants and places, engaging with major global issues such as habitat loss, species extinction, and the effect of people on the living world. Join us as we reimagine how gardens can provide transformative visitor experiences and build a wider platform of conservation messaging.
