Saturday August 25, 2012 is the date for this very special affair in the historic McBryde Garden under the moonlight. The evening begins at 6pm with tours into the Garden that will be dramatically lit to showcase this unique Kauai treasure.

If you have only seen the Garden during a daylight tour you are in for a treat. The landscape lighting offers a dramatic perspective to this lush valley. Lights play off gnarly trunks of mammoth trees and green foliage takes on an almost surreal appearance. This is not to be missed.

Less I forget there is limited seating for this great event, the funds raised will aid in important research. Among the many disciplines at NTBG the organization studies the role of tropical plants in a world that is experiencing increased climatic and population pressures on food production. This is important because tropical agriculture feeds a significant percentage of the worlds population.

Another equally critical mission of the NTBG is to identify threatened tropical plant species and safeguarding their survival. Tropical plants grow in a narrow equatorial band yet they are an important source of the worlds medicines, producing safer and more effective products that are cheaper alternatives to synthetic compounds.
