Pat-and-Peter-Raven_2177
Today Peter Raven agreed to join the Board of Trustees at the Prairie Garden Trust.
Peter has been tremendously helpful by connecting us with many people and organizations. He initiated an inventory of native plants on the property. Peter has had many suggestions on how to make the PGT be more effective. We look forward to working with him more closely!
Peter is famous around the world for his leadership on environmental issues and for his role as Director of the Missouri Botanical Garden. He was named a “Hero for the Planet” by TIME magazine and served as President of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He also serves on the board of trustees at the National Geographic Society.
Above is a snapshot I took of Peter and his wife Pat when they were visiting the PGT to collect Butternuts for the herbarium at the Missouri Botanical Garden.
