Members of the CALS community are invited to participate in Allen Centennial Garden’s 2020 winter lecture series, titled “Overstories,” presented by the Friends of Allen Centennial Garden. The lectures take place on Saturdays, 9–11:00 a.m., at campus’ Pyle Center.
The talks showcase UW–Madison experts discussing a variety of topics, including exploring hyper-local – and far out – frontiers in urban plant communities. Feel free to download and share the Overstories series flyer.
The cost is $15 per event. Talks are free for UW Students (with ID) and members of the Friends of ACG. Refreshments will be provided.
To register for one or more of the talks, visit the series’ Eventbrite page.
