Paul Weissich Education Center Dedication at Ho‘omaluhia Botanical Garden
On July 30th, Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden’s visitor center was dedicated as the Paul Weissich Education Center. Landscape architect and ASLA Hawaii Po’okela Award recipient Paul Weissich was Director of the Honolulu Botanical Gardens from 1957 to 1989. His visionary leadership combined our five Botanical Gardens and set the foundation for them to flourish into the exceptional botanical resources that they are today! Celebrating its 40th Anniversary, Ho’omaluhia’s gallery has a wonderful display recognizing Paul’s work and his planning and design efforts with Army Corp of Engineers from the very beginning of Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden. Paul remained very active with the Honolulu Botanic Gardens through many decades of volunteerism. The gallery will be highlighting his work through the end of August.
