Due to the growing concern of Coronavirus/COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel this Lunchbox Talk. After considering the UNC-Chapel Hill's event recommendations for campus and community partners, we have decided it is in the best interest of our community's health to call off the event, which was scheduled for 12:00 pm at the North Carolina Botanical Garden. 

We apologize for any inconvenience and are disappointed to cancel, particularly given the community's enthusiasm, but the health and safety of our community is our most important consideration.

After this talk, visit the DeBerry Gallery for an exhibit of the artwork featured in the presentation, and take a walk through the NCBG Mountain Habitat Garden to see the Trilliums in their full display


Registration open through 3/11/2020 11:59 PM
