2014 Scientist Lecture Series

Each year, The Holden Arboretum's Scientist Lecture Series invites you to delve deeper into the issues and conditions that impact the world around us. These free, academic lectures allow you to step back into the classroom and learn from the experts.


Each lecture is free and open to the public, but registration is required.


We would like to thank Jean Burns from the Department of Biology at Case Western Reserve University; Susan Kalisz from the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh; Bryant C. Scharenbroch, the Urban Soil Scientist at the Morton Arboretum; and Pierluigi "Enrico" Bonello from the Department of Plant Pathology at Ohio State University for taking part in the 2014 Scientist Lecture Series. They provided thought-provoking talks on the environmental challenges facing plant communities in the 21st Century. You can use the links to learn more about their work.

If you enjoyed the Scientist Lecture Series, don't miss our special Arbor Day lecture on Friday, April 25 at 7pm. Paul Meyer, Director at the Morris Arboretum will join us to discuss the Greatest Hits of Morris Arboretum’s International Plant Exploration.


The program for the 2015 Scientist Lecture Series will be posted in the fall. Check back for details.
