Arboretum Corps of Discovery Exhibit opened Saturday July 2 at the Arboretum Visitor Center.
SATURDAY, JULY 2, 2011
The Arboretum Corps of Discovery consists of a group of dedicated volunteers who have been trained to provide an esthetic documentation of the natural beauty and history of the Arboretum through writing, photography, sketching, and painting. The exhibit, on display at the Visitor Center through the end of August, showcases their work. It also highlights the modern Corps of Discovery concept which was developed by three biologists at the Illinois Natural History Survey, and is based on the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Reception at the Visitor Center, July 10, 1:00-3:00.
