Journey of Discovery: A Botanist on the Trail of Lewis and Clark

September 14, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


In 1804 the Lewis & Clark Expedition started up the Missouri River into the new U.S. territory gained by President Jefferson’s Louisiana Purchase. Their journey took them into lands unknown to the worldwide scientific community. This botanical travelogue by Dr. Janet Sullivan will weave together images of the landscape and its plant species, monuments and restored sites, and journal entries by members of the Corps of Discovery on their historic journey.

Janet R. Sullivan has been an adjunct faculty member in Plant Biology at UNH since 1985, and Curator of the Hodgdon Herbarium since 2005.  While at UNH, she has taught courses in introductory botany, systematic botany, biology of weeds, and the flora of New Hampshire.  She served as Editor-in-Chief of Rhodora, the research publication of the New England Botanical Society for 14 years. She currently serves on the Executive and Editorial Boards for the Flora of North America Association.
