Mentoring the next generation of conservation scientists is central to the Garden’s conservation and research mission.
TreeSnap and Torreya taxifolia
The TreeSnap app allows you to identify and tag trees in your community, on your property or in the wild. Scientists use the data you collect to locate trees for research projects, such as the Garden’s work with the highly endangered conifer, Torreya taxifolia.
Science Café features expert speakers and discussions on timely conservation topics on select Thursdays.
