Hurricane Katrina arrived at MBC late in the evening of Thursday, August 25th. A significant number of MBC’s Palm Collections were affected, as well as a smaller number of our Cycad Collections. Additionally, many of our hardwood trees were felled. Damage assessments of the plant collections took three full days and were completed on August 31st.
