At the Arnold Arboretum, we strive every day to embody our core values. A strong commitment to social and economic justice drives our public outreach, from offering enrichment programs for Boston schoolchildren and free admission for all to providing equal opportunities for women to succeed in science. This Women’s History Month, we honor some of the remarkable women who have helped shape our legacy. From Constance Derderian’s careful preservation of our bonsai collection to Beatrix Farrand’s influence on the display of our azaleas, pioneering women at the Arnold Arboretum paved the way for a new generation of leaders in plant science and horticulture to pursue their goals.
