Watch history come to life in this special centennial-themed lecture about The Morton Arboretum. Celebrating 100 years, The Morton Arboretum has a fascinating past. Two of the Arboretum’s most knowledgeable historians, author Cindy Crosby and library collections manager Rita Hassert, will share stories of the Mortons, the Arboretum, and the trees that make this place such a treasure. Join us in person, or tune in via Zoom from the comfort of your home.
Following the presentation, those joining us in person are invited to a special open house of the Sterling Morton Library, where special and rarely seen items from the collection, including works of art, will be on display.
Program participants must abide by the Arboretum’s safety guidelines.
