The Missouri Botanical Garden
St. Louis, Missouri
On Sunday, October 12, 2003, Dr. Steven R. Hill (Botanist
at the Illinois
Natural History Survey in Champaign, and a Research Associate at the
Missouri Botanical Garden) gave a tour of a portion of the Botanical
Garden as well as portions of the Monsanto Building, containing a large
part of the research Herbarium as well as the Gardens Library, to guests
Barry Sutton, his daughter Rachael, and their friend Dorothy (Dot).
The Images of this tour were made by Barry. The Botanical Garden is
open to the public. Visitors to the Monsanto Building facilities normally
must obtain a Visitors pass at the security desk just inside of its main
entrance to use the Library, and prior arrangements are normally
necessary to visit the Herbarium.
