NESBA members visit the Arnold Arboretum

A fabulous time was had by all on our visit to see the historic botanical pieces from the Arboretum’s library. First greeted by director of the arboretum, William Friedman, and then guided through the collection by librarian Lisa Pierson, we were treated to see works by Hooker, Martuis, Humbolt, Jacquin, Knoop, Catesby, Rousseau and more. Lisa graciously invited any of our NESBA members to book appointments with her to peruse these artifacts.
