Cincinnati Horticulture Expert to Give Arboretum Lecture

Published: Feb 12, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 12, 2013) — While we still are experiencing periods of cold weather this time of year, spring is just around the corner when it comes to thoughts of plants, gardens, and landscaping.

 

Against this backdrop, Friends of The Arboretum will host Steve Foltz, director of horticulture at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden this Thursday, Feb. 14, at 7 p.m. in the the auditorium of the Gluck Equine Research Center on the University of Kentucky campus.  This appearance by Foltz, who oversees one of the most visited public gardens in the Midwest, is part of the 2013 Founders Lecture Series.  The event is free and open to the public.

 

Foltz will discuss how to educate and inspire visitors about plants, plant selection, and landscaping. 

 

"We are really looking forward to hearing how the zoo and botanical garden select the 'Zoo's Best' plants," said Marcia Farris, director of The Arboretum.  "Everyone who attends will receive expert advice about our region's landscape and how we all can best design our own gardens to make a difference in our local environment."

 

The Arboretum, located off of Alumni Drive on the south side of campus, is the State Botanical Garden of Kentucky and is a part of the UK College of Agriculture. The Friends of The Arboretum is a nonprofit organization which encourages participation in the educational and recreational aspects of The Arboretum and raises funds to assist in its development.
