    A little about the speaker: Charles R. "Chipper" Wichman, Jr., President, Chief Executive Officer and National Tropical Botanical Garden Director, joined NTBG's staff in 1976, after graduating from the Horticultural Internship program. He spent his early career developing Limahuli Garden. During this time, he obtained a Special Subzone designation in the Conservation District for the entire Limahuli Valley, restored ancient taro terraces, developed a collection of rare and endangered native Hawaiian plants, opened the garden to educational tours, and added the 989-acre Limahuli Preserve. Subsequently Limahuli was named the Best Natural Botanical Garden in the United States by the American Horticultural Society.
