Fall/Winter 2013 Newsletter
This issue highlights Loyd Kelly’s contributions to Montgomery. This spring we dedicated the Loyd G. Kelly Conservation Nursery, a facility that promotes better plant health and allows for improved plant conservation and plant diversity. Loyd Kelly attended the dedication before he passed away on June 27, 2013. Please see pages 3, 4, and 8 for more information on Loyd Kelly and his impact on MBC.
Montgomery is also pleased to announce Walter Haynes’s generous endowment of the Landscape Design Fund. Landscape design and garden aesthetics have always been a critical component of the MBC mission. This fund will ensure that Montgomery will always have the means to support professional landscape architecture design for the garden.
This year Montgomery Botanical Center has been recognized at local, national, and international levels (please see page 7). A few new publications are highlighted, but more can be found on our online bibliography. Also, on page 7 you will find an announcement of the launch of the World List of Cycads, a new online database of cycad species.
