Twenty-five members of the Philadelphia Branch of PGMS were treated to a behind the scenes look at Morris Arboretum this October. Morris Arboretum Education Coordinator, Jan McFarlan, described the scope of the arboretum’s programs and highlighted the educational programs Morris offers to professionals in the Green Industry. Scott Guiser, Sr. Extension Educator from Penn State, provided an update on seasonal pests. After lunch, we toured the arboretum grounds, lead by Jason Lubar, Directory of Urban Forestry, Louise Clarke, Horticulturist and Tony Aiello, Director of Horticulture.
