This symposium moves beyond the basics for those seeking excellence in plant collections management. Learn how to effectively use collections audits and benchmarking as decision-making tools for collaborative collections development.

Explore innovative ways you can integrate your plant records, GIS data, and digital images into an accessible public interface. Collaborate with your peers to establish best practices designed to maximize the direct impact of plant collections at your garden.
Finally, don’t miss this opportunity to explore three prominent DC area gardens, take curatorial tours of extensive collections and facilities led by their knowledgeable staff, network with colleagues at evening receptions amid iconic settings in our nation’s capital.
