Director’s Lecture for Fairchild Members by Dr. Carl Lewis, FTBG Director, Wednesday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the Arts Center.
The Future of Botany
We invite you, our members, to help us build a better future through botany. Just as Dr. David Fairchild introduced new plants and reinvented agriculture a century ago, we are working toward similar large-scale transformations. Dr. Carl Lewis will present the Garden's most innovative projects and explain how you can get involved.
Dr. Lewis is a botanist, explorer, and educator. He joined the Fairchild science staff in 2001, and has served as Director for the past eight years. With a passionate belief in the importance of plants to society, Dr. Lewis is developing our Garden into a place where everyone can learn about botany.
