2015 BGCI Congress Program

 

Girl smelling herbsReview and acceptance of proposal submissions has concluded. The BGCI Education team, along with the Missouri Botanical Garden Education team, is pleased to share the Congress Program, which we hope enables you to plan, prepare, and get the most out of your Congress experience.

The 2015 BGCI Education Congress Program boasts an extensive selection of 30 panel sessions, 20 workshops, 3 world café’s, roundtable session and poster showcases. In addition to the inspiring and motivating sessions, we are offering tours of Missouri Botanical Garden, a special opening reception event, a field trip to Shaw Nature Reserve with dinner, and a nocturne event at Missouri History Museum.

When you register, don't forget to sign up to our engaging tours! There are several day-long, pre- and post-congress tours around Missouri and into Illinois, as well as the 3 day tour around Chicago, Illinois.
