U.S. Botanic Garden's Summer Exhibit Focuses on Sustainability

The United States Botanic Garden's summer exhibition (running now through Columbus Day) focuses on "sustainability" and demonstrates ways that each of us and our communities can live for tomorrow, as well as for today. Organizations from around the country are participating in this exhibit. EPA helped develop display panels on Green Infrastructure/Low Impact Development that are inside the Conservatory building as well as a number of displays in the outside adjacent gardens.

EPA's Greenscaping Program has a display near the entrance to the Conservatory building which includes a rain barrel, composting bin, and pervious pavement. EPA's Office of Wetlands, Oceans and Watersheds collaborated with Penn State University's Department to build a demonstration green roof at eye-level.

More than 40 exhibits on different aspects of sustainability are on display. The U.S. Botanic Garden's exhibit, One Planet - Ours!, opened May 24 and will remain on display through October 13, 2008. The U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory is located at 100 Maryland Ave., SW on the west side of the U.S. Capitol. The closest Metrorail stop is Capitol South.
