Christopher Todd Glenn, Programs and Education Coordinator
April 15, 2010 (Thursday) – 7:30 PM–9:00 PM

In this lecture, Chris is going to present a behind the scenes look at how we utilize this data to better educate our real and virtual visitors. Some of the uses presented in the lecture will include our Web site (Current Plantings, Now Showing, Showtimes, etc.), Plant Finder kiosk, engraved labels, among many others.
