Education and Communication

Public gardens bring science to life for so many audiences, with interpretation, education, and communication programs that impact communities in and outside of the garden gates. How are you communicating your conservation, collections, and research in collaboration with others? How do you catalyze visitors to become action-oriented toward conservation and stewardship in the face of climate change? How do you measure the impact on your diverse audiences through all communication channels?
