It’s safe to say that few people have lived lives as thoroughly devoted to plants as Dr. Peter H. Raven, the Garden’s President Emeritus. Dr. Raven has been a tireless champion of sustainability and biodiversity, earning him the plaudit of “Hero for the Planet” from Time.

Join Dr. Raven at this special Member Speaker Series for a discussion of Driven by Nature, his newly released autobiography that takes readers across multiple continents and decades. Driven by Nature follows the globetrotting botanist from China to the American Midwest as he works to foster concern for a changing planet, further the cause of biological education, and build the Missouri Botanical Garden into the world-renowned haven for plant life it is today.
