2018 Excellence in Plant Collections Management Symposium
Collect. Cultivate. Curate.
Hosted by UBC Botanical Garden and VanDusen Botanical Garden in partnership with Vancouver Botanical Gardens Association.
Program Sponsor: USDA Forest Service Technology Sponsor: IrisBG
This symposium moves beyond the basics for those seeking excellence in plant collections management. Intrinsically dynamic, living collections require active curation to remain relevant and mission-critical.
An optional full day pre-symposium tour will explore maritime to montane forests. The symposium kicks off with a Welcome Mixer Tuesday evening. Wednesday’s program will be held at different locations at the University of British Columbia, culminating in a poster session and evening reception. Thursday will include a full day of programs at VanDusen Botanical Garden. An optional Friday morning workshop will provide IrisBG botanical management software training.
