Lowcountry: Native Plants in the Grounds and Gardens at MUSC
January 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Nathan Dubosh, MUSC arborist
The grounds department at the Medical University of South Carolina knows that trees and green space have a positive impact on human health. This urban campus covers 80 acres in downtown Charleston and contains approximately 3,000 trees! In 2009 MUSC had 68 species of trees and by 2017 that number had increased to 160 species after planting 437 new trees. Come learn about their efforts to incorporate native vegetation in the campus plantings and the process of species selection when choosing trees.
