About the event

To celebrate the Arboretum’s sesquicentennial, this year’s series will explore the Magic and Meaning of a Garden of Trees. Over the course of four sessions, we will trace the Arnold’s significance in the landscape architecture movement, value for the people of Boston, and leadership in creating global connections between plants and people. The first three sessions will consist of brief presentations and a moderated panel, and I will offer the closing talk in the series this autumn. All sessions are free and will be offered both in person and livestreamed.
