Around the Arboretum
In honor of women's history month, the arboretum hosted a women in the environment series. Research assistants Emily Schumacher and Austin Koontz attended one of these talks by Tanisha Williams, PhD, one of the founders of #BlackBotanistsWeek who is a postdoc at Bucknell University. Tanisha spoke about her personal relationship with botany and how many other black women have been foundational to our understandings of planets, and also how we can connect more people of color with botany. What an incredible talk!
