Forward the NCBG
featuring Dr. Peter White

PeterWhiteNCBGDiscover what the future holds for the North Carolina Botanical Garden, the Children’s Wonder Garden, the Entry Garden, and the behind the scenes activities from the director of the NCBG.

Peter White directs the University’s North Carolina Botanical Garden. The Garden became one of the first gardens to enact policies aimed at lowering the risk of release of exotic pest organisms in 1998 and was presented with a Program Excellence Award in 2004 by the American Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta. In 2009, the Garden opened the Education Center, a 29,000 sq ft facility that was the first state-owned building in North Carolina to achieve a Platinum LEED rating.

Peter White serves on the Boards of the North Carolina Plant Conservation Program, the Center for Plant Conservation and Discover Life in America.
