Harold Sweetman will present a slide show lecture with highlights of the Arboretum's history and many successful events such as the Monarch Gathering and the Enormous Watering Can Sculpture Exhibition. Come and experience four seasons of natural beauty. The "digging into the future" will be about the new Education Center with construction to begin immediately following the "Spring Bloom Festival" which runs from mid-April to the end of May. Jenkins Arboretum entrance Harold E. Sweetman, Ph.D. A place to sit and enjoy the view Biographical Information Harold has been Executive Director of the Jenkins Arboretum in Devon, Pennsylvania for the past 22 years. In 2006, Jenkins Arboretum celebrated its 30th anniversary. Stewardship of the development and growth of a public garden whose mission is to specialize in the genus, Rhododendron, has been very rewarding for Harold. The Arboretum's naturalistic landscape design showcasing native plants is an ideal setting for an extensive ericaceous plant collection of species and hybrid rhododendrons. Jenkins is known for its azaleas and rhododendrons, but the wildflower displays and scientific collections of native plants are of equal merit. Dr. Sweetman also has a faculty appointment at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and maintains a poisonous plant collection for the purpose of student field study. Theshowcase displayof rich native floraincluding trees, shrubs, wildflowers and ferns along with azaleas and rhododendrons adds up to a huge number of potentially poisonous plants. Harold has traveled extensively in the pursuit of expanding Arboretum plant collections. These trips have also been very personally rewarding for Harold as they test endurance and stamina in the quest for more plant knowledge. Harold received the ARS Bronze Medal award in 1995 and in 2002 the Environmental Awareness Award and Conservation Medal from the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. He chairs the Research Committee of the American Rhododendron Society Research Foundation. Harold holds a Ph.D. in Biology from Boston University.
