"The Crosby Arboretum is one of the most unique plant conservatories in the Southeast," said senior curator Melinda Lyman.
"Pitcher plants were once common from the Florida Panhandle to Louisiana, but today most of their habitat is being lost to urbanization," Lyman
"The new facility will help us be able to better accommodate the needs of the community and to conduct our outreach programs," Lyman
A campaign to raise funds for the new visitor center is under way.
