Celebrate spring with your MASA colleagues by joining us for a lunch hour tour of the Botany greenhouses and gardens.

Eat lunch a little early, or late, and spend your lunch hour touring these greenhouses and gardens with a preeminent botany scholar.  Learn more about the UW-Madison Botanical Garden, the first garden in the world to be based on the modern system of classification of plants, APGII, created in 2003.  See a Wollemi pine, one of the oldest and rarest trees on earth, and learn about the successful propagation of a titan arum, the largest and smelliest of flowers.
