The Chicago Botanic Garden is pleased to host the second annual Plant Biology and Conservation Symposium especially for graduate and undergraduate students. This will be a day-long event focused on providing students with an early opportunity to present their research to colleagues. It is a wonderful chance for students with related interests and concerns to learn about the research of others, make contacts, and present their own work in a collegial and low-stress environment. The event will close with an invited keynote speaker who is distinguished in the field of plant biology and conservation.
