  • 1:30P | Applying Modern Technology in the Landscape: Mapping Bayard Cutting Arboretum’s Collections

    Living in the digital age, the arboretum adopts modern practices to understand and share their extensive collections. The gathering of data has been upgraded from historical paper maps to high quality mapping technology. Using the data, we can manage, quantify, and improve the landscape moving into the future. This utilization of technology has been a valuable asset to the arboretum’s many horticultural and environmental projects. Join Joy as she discusses the power of modern mapping at Bayard Cutting Arboretum in response to the changing landscape.
