Our Speaker Series brings experts in to talk about their books, artwork, studies, and stories. These speakers come from all different fields and locations, but they’re all connected to plants somehow, whether it’s botany, horticulture, agriculture, or environmental science. This series will give these professionals a platform to share their expertise in Portland. We recognize that other local organizations host speaker series, but we hope to work with those organizations to provide an additional platform on the international stage, potentially connecting them with other resources and audiences.
Plans for Future Speakers
While Portland Botanical Gardens is not open to the public at this time, we hope to begin our Speaker Series virtually—or in community spaces—before construction is completed.
