Every summer, the Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden hosts an Annual Atkins Garden Walk as a one-day event that is open to the UIC community and the Public. The past few years, elements of this event have been online/hybrid, so that interested viewers are able to join safely from home.

Faculty and scientists in the Pharmacognosy Institute and the UIC College of Pharmacy organize the event, which involves a tour of the Atkins Medicinal Plant Garden as well as a lecture by an expert on a topic related to medicinal plants and/or plants used for human health.

At 12 pm, hear renowned lichenologist Thorsten Lumbsch, PhD talk about "Lichens - evolutionary insights into colorful chemical factories"

*Both Covid-19 vaccination and masks are strongly encouraged for this event.
