Sat., Sept. 14; 9:45 – 10:30 a.m.
Peek Behind the Petals

Discover the exciting international field work of our Botany in Action fellows at this special presentation exclusively for Phipps members.

At this month's Peek Behind the Petals, meet our Botany in Action fellows and learn about their global research in plant conservation, ethnobotany and sustainable landscapes. This year's dynamic group of fellows have been conducting original research in locales ranging from Western Pennsylvania to the Pacific islands and Carpathian mountains, and they are excited to bring their findings back to Phipps. Coffee and tea will be served, and after the presentation, we invite you to explore the new Van Gogh in Bloom exhibit and, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., enjoy the Tropical Forest Cuba Festival with live entertainment, regionally-inspired food samples, activities and more!

This event is free for our members; however, reservations* are required by Mon., Sept 9. Reserve your spot today!
