Morris Arboretum Horticulture Center Dedication
October 5, 2010
Penn's Morris Arboretum recently dedicated its new $13 million Horticulture Center at Bloomfield Farm on October 5, 2010 with Penn President Amy Gutmann, Penn Board of Trustees Chair David L. Cohen, Philanthropist Dorrance Hamilton, Advisory Board Chair Ann Reed, and Arboretum Director Paul Meyer attending the rainy day ceremony.
"For an outstanding example of what can be achieved when respect for nature, love of education, and dedication to the future are combined, one can do no better than to visit the Morris Arboretum," said President Gutmann in her remarks.
The Horticulture Center Complex is the first new building to be constructed on the property since the founding of the Morris Arboretum in the early 1900s, and was designed to receive Platinum LEED certification, the highest possible. If obtained, the complex would become Penn's first Platinum-certified structure.
