Let’s Stay Connected: May 4 — 10
We at Phipps are always thinking of our members, visitors and friends, and during these uncertain times, we want to provide you with nature's beauty and inspiration, just like we would if you were with us in the glasshouse. Phipps will remain closed through the stay-at-home order, but in the meantime, we're sharing a virtual treasure trove of materials to help you engage with nature, re-experience the wonder of Phipps shows past, make your own gardening plans and more. We appreciate your support of Phipps and look forward to staying in contact in this way!

Nature of Place Symposium Resources
The inaugural Nature of Place Symposium explored the human experience of biophilia and built excitement and appreciation for the importance of green space in cities. In this online resource, contributors present video, written summaries and more to take you inside this important gathering and invite you to join the conversation.
