NTBG Turns 50 Years Old!

The National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kauai, Hawaii turns 50 years old today, August 19th! And Dean Sakamoto, architect of NTBG's Juliet Rice Wichman Botanical Research Center (BRC), is attending this event. During this celebration, NTBG will be announcing the dedication of the new Biodiversity Trail which honors Senator Daniel K. Inouye. NTBG's Congressional Charter was achieved by Senator Inouye in 1964, his first among many lasting legacies he has established for Hawai`i. Today, NTBG is a global leader in responsible sustainable development - striking a balance between the natural environment and humankind's ability to shape it. Pictured above at the Daniel K.
