The Critical Role of Public Gardens


When: October 23, 2019
2:00 PM
Where: Ambler Theatre
108 East Butler Avenue
Ambler, Pennsylvania  
United States
Morris Arboretum


A lecture and public reception with Morris Arboretum’s new Executive Director William (Bill) Cullina. Noted for his public garden leadership and expertise as a horticulturist with extensive knowledge of native North American plants, Bill joined Morris Arboretum from Coastal Maine Botanic Gardens (CMBG). Bill started at CMBG in 2008 as its director of horticulture and plant curator. In 2011 he became President and CEO, charged with leading the organization in service to its mission: to inspire meaningful connections among people, plants, and nature through horticulture, education, and research. Bill will discuss the increasingly critical role that public gardens play in American society. He will consider biophilia: the affinity of human beings for other life forms and what this means for public gardens. He will also reflect on ways that gardens provide accessibility, improve physical and mental health, engage in critical research, and provide space for quiet joy and transcendence.

Sponsored by: Morris Arboretum (Klein endowed lecture)
