Plant Exploration: The Value of Observing, Documenting, and Collecting Wild Plants

Phil Douglas, Director of Plant Collections at the Chicago Botanic Garden, will discuss his recent travels collecting and documenting plants across three continents. Douglas will detail his work in the Caucasus Mountains of Azerbaijan, the seaside forests of Hokkaido, Japan, and Big Bend National Park in Texas.
