Shout Out in the 2023 GCCM Annual Report



Published April 24, 2024

Every year the Global Conservation Consortium for Magnolia (GCCM) publishes an annual report that goes out to partners around the world. We were very excited to see Smithies featured in the 2023 report! 

Included in the newly-published report (on page 7) is an account of the work our botanic garden conservation interns are doing in collaboration with Professor Jesse Bellemare from the Department of Biological Sciences at Smith College as well as with Interim Director John Berryhill. Pictured on that page in the report is 2023 conservation intern Avery Maltz AC (right) and Bellemare (left).

The annual report also included the Fall 2023 SAQ article, "Saving the Mountain Magnolia," which reported on the research and conservation work the botanic garden and biological sciences department are leading with this species of magnolia.
