Did you meet Carrie, the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden’s corpse flower? Although recognized for the plant’s unappetizing smell, Carrie is also an important plant for conservation reasons. Join Sydney Algreen-Hunter, Assistant Director of Education, to learn about the corpse flower and other plants of conservation importance in collection at the Botanical Garden. Sydney will also share other efforts that the GDMBG has done to learn, conserve, and protect important plants in Iowa and across the world.
