#plantlove: The Weekend

Saturday, February 16, 2019 – Monday, February 18, 2019

10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Exploring the root of our love for plants

The root of our love for plants is an innate force of nature known as biophilia. Explore this fundamental attraction through an all-new exhibition in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, curated viewings of the vast collections of the William and Lynda Steere Herbarium and LuEsther T. Mertz Library, informative tours, a propagation demo, and a #plantlove Happy Hour co-hosted by The Sill, ihavethisthingwithurbanjungles, and ApartmentBotanist—each designed to help foster a deeper connection with the natural world.
