While many public gardens are open for visitors, many schools started the fall teaching remotely or having limited in-school time. Educators are thinking of and creating ways to continue to serve school groups amidst the ongoing pandemic. A number of gardens are switching to virtual field trips; some are hosting small groups on site. We’ll explore the changing scene in offering school programs. Kathy Johnson of Chicago Botanic Garden and Karin Davidson-Taylor with Royal Botanical Gardens will share what they have planned. Moderator Tracy Calla will share what’s happening at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. Time will be allocated for smaller group “breakout room” discussion and general sharing.

Pre-registration required.
