Director’s Lecture for Fairchild Members by Dr. Carl Lewis, FTBG Director

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.

The lecture will take place in Fairchild's Garden House.

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.
