Calling all Friends of the Arboretum! Did you miss your chance to join us back in January for our once-in-a-lifetime voyage up the Mekong River as we explored Cambodia and Vietnam? Not to worry - here's your chance to experience the sights, the culture and all of the marvelous plants we saw from the perspective of our director, Mark Weathington, as he shows off the highlights from this amazing cruise!

This Friends of the Arboretum Lecture will be a throwback to the early years of the arboretum when Dr. J. C. Raulston would share tales of his travels with slide tray after slide tray of awe-inspiring photographs. We are limiting Mark to just a few hundred pictures (unless he can figure out how to project his digital photographs through the Arboretum's fully functional slide carousel, in which case all bets are off!) so join us for this magical evening and be transported around the world to another world!

Free for Friends of the JC Raulston Arboretum members and their guests.
