On Friday, July 28th, the Center for Tree Science -Undergraduate Research Fellows welcomed research interns from the Field Museum and Chicago Botanic Garden. Fellows and interns from the Arboretum practiced their science communication skills as they gave informal presentations about the research projects being conducted in our Living Collections, the East Woods, and the Prairie Restoration experiment.
A morning tram tour was a great way to highlight some of the Arboretum’s 1,700 acres...
...and after lunch, students toured the research labs and fellows demonstrated equipment and techniques.
Throughout the day, everyone had the opportunity to see some of the amazing Oragami in the Garden exhibit, large-scale metal sculptures based on the traditional Japanese art of paper folding.
Our thanks to the interns and staff from the Chicago Botanic Garden and Field Museum for joining us!
