 • Led by our Herbarium Curator Dr. Brett Jestrow, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden hosts a monthly workshop where Fairchild Challenge School Teachers and Garden Members can bring their plants to have them identified. This workshop aims to enhance the public appreciation for our unique flora and also to increase awareness for those invasive species that threaten the ecosystems of South Florida. The workshops take place the first Friday of every month at the Center for Tropical Plant Conservation (11935 Old Cutler Road, ca. 1 mile south from the Main Garden) between 1:00 and 4:00 PM. This community and scientific educational activity of our herbarium was featured in the June 6 issue of the Miami Herald. Click here for the full news cover.
