Free Calhoun Lecture
The Calhoun Lecture series is made possible through the generous support of the family of Marion Peel Calhoun.
Every other year the Garden offers a special opportunity for teachers to supplement their life science curriculum with presentations by leading horticulurists, explorers, and researchers.
The lectures are free and open to students in grades 6 - 12. After the lecture, participating classes are invited to take a self-guided tour of the Garden.
2011 Calhoun Lecture
The 2011 Calhoun Lecture featured Life in the Dark: Wildlife From the Shadowy Corners of Our Planet.
Dante Fenolio, Ph.D and Amphibian Conservation Scientist at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, was awarded a grant to produce a photographic book focusing on nocturnal organisms. His talk provided a rare preview of images slated for use in the project.
The next Calhoun Lecture will be in 2013.
