SOLD OUT! Be as a Tree Planted by the Waters: The Magic of Roots, Leaves, and Everything in Between

The Arnold Arboretum welcomes Hope Jahren, PhD, Center for Earth Evolution and Dynamics, University of Oslo, who will give a talk on "Be as a Tree Planted by the Waters: The Magic of Roots, Leaves, and Everything in Between."

Trees are the oldest, biggest, and most successful creatures in the world. Using energy from the sun, and carbon from the air, they have thrived on land for more than four hundred million years. Hear about the amazing and unique methods that plants around us use to establish, grow, flourish, and defend themselves. Learn how plants are much more than food, medicine, and wood — they form the living, striving foundation of Planet Earth.

Hope Jahren is an award-winning scientist and the author of Lab Girl, her revelatory treatise on plant life and a celebration of the lifelong curiosity, humility, and passion that drive every scientist.
