Friends of the National Arboretum welcomed 550 horticulturists, business leaders and members of Congress to its 20th Annual Cookout Under the Stars June 17. Each year, the cookout celebrates a different state. Peter Raven, president emeritus of the Missouri Botanical Garden, was honored at the fundraising event, which was held in the Ellipse Meadow below the Arboretum’s dramatic National Capitol Columns. Board chair Barbara Shea said the Arboretum is a place, where “science meets beauty.” FONA provides financial and other vital assistance for the U.S. Arboretum’s research, public education and outreach functions.
