Botany in Action Fellow to Speak at the Three Rivers Arts Festival Tonight!
Tonight, Tuesday June 9th, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, one of Phipps' Botany in Action Fellows, Dr. Anna Johnson, will be giving a short presentation and demonstration about the history of invasive plants in garden design and their current ecological impacts, at a pop-up gallery located at 820 Liberty Avenue, as part of the Three Rivers Arts Festival. Anna acted as the "advising ecologist" on the art project "un|cultivate" developed by Addy Smith-Reiman and Joshua Reiman as part of this year's Pittsburgh Community Supported Arts program. So if you're headed downtown for the Arts Festival this evening, stop by the pop-up gallery at 820 Liberty Avenue to learn all about the invasive plant species that could be calling your garden "home" and meet one of our Botany in Action Fellows!
