Matthew Stephens shares his vision for these bay area treasures

Matthew Stephens is the Director of both the Conservatory of Flowers and the San Francisco Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park. Come hear about his vision for these bay area treasures and how he is working to further elevate these living museums into international destinations and leaders in plant conservation by connecting plants, people and resources. From the magnificent Magnolia collection to the California Native Garden and the century old Redwood Grove, Stephens oversees over 8,000 different plants from around the world. He welcomes visitors in a place of exceptional beauty in the national historic landmark, the Conservancy of Flowers. Also learn how in his previous role with New York City Parks and Recreation, he led the successful Million Trees New York City campaign that demonstrated the role of beautification in crime reduction. This will be a talk to remember. Please tell a friend and bring a friend to this FREE public event. Light refreshments will be served. For more information about the gardens, click here and here
