While many public gardens are open for visitors, many schools started the fall teaching remotely or having limited in-school time. Educators are thinking of and creating ways to continue to serve school groups amidst the ongoing pandemic. A number of gardens are switching to virtual field trips; some are hosting small groups on site. We’ll explore the changing scene in offering school programs. Kathy Johnson of Chicago Botanic Garden and Karin Davidson-Taylor with Royal Botanical Gardens will share what they have planned. Moderator Tracy Calla will share what’s happening at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.
