One priority of Mizzou Botanic Garden’s (MUBG) strategic plan is to get the word out about the garden through outreach and collaboration with area groups and organizations. This spring and summer, MUBG is presenting cosponsored Brown Bag Seminars on environmental topics. And you’re invited.

Join us for a discussion on “The Ecological Imperative to Move Beyond Plastics,” from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., March 16, in the Stotler Lounge on the first floor of MU’s Memorial Union. Featured speaker is Dana Ripper, co-director and co-founder of Missouri River Bird Observatory (MRBO). She also is a certified speaker with the national Beyond Plastics project.
