Director of Caine Conservatory
Botanical conservatories serve to engender a sense of awe and appreciation for the natural world through aesthetic living displays of plants. Conservatories are a feast for the senses. Visitors can enjoy the sound of crashing waterfalls amid lush and fragrant exotic plants from around the world, all housed in soaring architecture of glass and steel. Conservatories have sparked fascination and wonder throughout their history, from the common gardener, to academics, to the royal patrons of plant exploration. The Caine Conservatory at High Point University will further this botanical legacy by bringing a new tropical oasis to campus and the surrounding Triad community.
