Kathy and Chris recently returned from a site visit to the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis! ALD is proud to have been recently hired as part of the JCo. team working to renovate the incredible Brookings Interpretive Center. The exhibits in the Center are being redone and updated to allow for greater flexibility. The Brookings Interpretive Center does a variety of events and exhibit themes each year aimed to educate visitors about the importance of plants and conservation.The Center emphasizes family-friendly and hands-on learning environments. The planned renovation will allow the space (and the lighting) to adapt to each different theme! Past exhibit themes include: Exploring Trees Inside and Out, EarthWays: Living the Green Life, DinoQuest: A Tropical Trek Through Time, TREEmendous and Plants and People: China.The photos from our recent site visit depict the current Nature in Your Neighborhood exhibit designed to open visitors' eyes to the plants that exist around them. This exhibit will be there though January 4, 2015.
