The Friends of the Botanic Garden Leadership Council amplifies the impact of the botanic garden through service, advocacy, networking and philanthropy, and serves as a thought partner for the botanic garden director.
The Leadership Council's primary areas of focus include:
- Developing a strong, informed team of alums able to advocate on behalf of the botanic garden, both within and beyond the Smith community;
- Creating opportunities for alums to engage with the botanic garden and experience its beauty, engagement of students, collaboration with other campus programs, contributions to plant conservation, and other aspects of its role as a college garden; and
- Growing membership in the Friends of the Botanic Garden and the botanic garden's capacity to raise needed funds.
